High-performance cockpit systems for civil aviation aircraft

Flight Control Systems

Lowering the landing gear, activating the flaps, engaging the automatic braking system, offsetting the flight control surfaces, or manually guiding the nose wheel, are the main recurring actions undertaken from the flight deck. In order to implement and control them, Safran offers a wide range of levers, joysticks, latches, control panels, switches, control buttons, and illuminated switches that make the task easier for the crew. These integrated systems are extremely reliable and high-performing. They offer a greater resistance to vibrations and are equipped with a lighting system that is as well adapted for use at night as it is in bright lighting conditions. Safran supplies this equipment to the main civil aircraft manufacturers: Airbus, Boeing, ATR, Embraer, Fokker, etc.


For all of these systems, Safran controls the design, fabrication, and assembly of the control panels, lighting plates, and indicators, to meet the needs of each type of civil aircraft manufacturer. Its products and services are certified:

  • ISO 9001
  • AS 9100
  • FAA (Federal Aviation Administration)
  • EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency)
