Goodrich Corporation has received a contract from Lockheed Martin to supply 160 pylons for the US Air Force C-5 Galaxy strategic airlifter reliability enhancement and re-engining programme (RERP).

The pylons, which will attach the propulsion system to the aircraft’s wing, are to be delivered from the beginning of 2011 to the end of 2015.

Each C-5M Super Galaxy will be powered by four GE CF6-80C2 engines, which requires a nacelle system and pylon.

The C-5M Super Galaxy is the only aircraft capable of carrying 100% of certified air-transportable cargo.

Goodrich previously received a contract from Lockheed to provide pylons and nacelles for three test aircraft as well as nine airplanes in the initial phases of the RERP.
