Flight Eagle LT Takes to the Skies

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s Aviation business introduced its Flight Eagle LT (Light Turbine) tire for the rapidly growing entry level, very light and light jet business segments.

The Flight Eagle LT is an extension of Goodyear’s Flight Eagle line of aviation tires, a top choice for business jets.

“Throughout our 100 year history, Goodyear Aviation has been involved in many aviation developments,” said Pierre Jambon, general manager of Goodyear’s Global Aviation Business. “From supplying tires to the Wright brothers, to providing the right tires for Embraer’s newest personal jets, we have earned our reputation as an innovator. The business and personal jet category is our next step in this progression.”

The Flight Eagle LT tire features a robust 6-ply tire casing, high-speed tread compound, and a reinforced bead area to help provide performance in higher speed applications. Its two-groove tread design helps maximize the number of landings and provide performance in wet conditions. The tire also has the same features found in the Flight Eagle line, including sidewalls with antioxidants to help resist ozone.

Embraer has approved the Flight Eagle LT as an OE fitment on its entry level jet, the Phenom 100 aircraft, which is currently available, and its Light Jet Phenom 300 aircraft, scheduled for delivery this year. (Tire Review/Akron)
