The new wheels and brakes are expected to certified next year and will be available for the aforementioned Piaggio models. Recently completed are the overpressure, radial load, fatigue (roll), and brake endurance tests, while the final wheel load tests are scheduled for completion in the month of October. Preliminary physical fit and static functional checks have been conducted on both configurations of landing gear of the Avanti and of the Avanti EVO. On-runway braking tests will take place next year, with final approval and release of the product expected in the course of 2018.
