Hydraulic and pneumatic testing

Over the years, CTA has tested hydraulic and pneumatic systems for various aircraft models, including front and main landing gear retraction actuators, brake and steering fluid management systems, ducts, servo valves and manifolds.

CTA has developed its own hydraulic and pneumatic systems to reproduce high pressure, flow and temperature conditions in a simultaneous and controlled manner using air and different fluids such as skydrol, red oil, paraffin and water to perform temperature, fatigue and service life tests.
