French carrier HOP!-REGIONAL, which is based in Nantes and part of HOP!, an Air France subsidiary, decided to renew its confidence in Liebherr-Aerospace for the overhaul of Embraer landing gear systems. Following a program signed in 2007 for 37 EMB135/145 aircraft, the companies now concluded an overhaul agreement for the airline’s fleet of 26 Embraer E170 and E190.
Liebherr-Aerospace will carry out all overhaul activities at its facility in Lindenberg (Germany).

Moreover, this new contract confirms our leading position in E-Jet landing gear overhauls in Europe.”
The complete landing gear systems for the E-Jet family E170, E175, E190 and E195, which include the brake systems, were developed and manufactured by the OEM Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Liebherr’s center of excellence for flight control and landing gear systems.
