shares of Class A Common Stock and 6,727 shares of Class B Common Stock.
ITEM 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
Sections 722 through 726 of the New York Business Corporation Law, or BCL, grant New York
corporations broad powers to indemnify their present and former directors and officers and those of affiliated
corporations against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually
and reasonably incurred in connection with threatened, pending or completed actions, suits or proceedings to which
they are parties or are threatened to be made parties by reason of being or having been such directors or officers,
subject to specified conditions and exclusions; give a director or officer who successfully defends an action the right
to be so indemnified; and permit a corporation to buy directors’ and officers’ liability insurance. Such
indemnification is not exclusive of any other rights to which those indemnified may be entitled under any by-laws,
agreement, vote of shareholders or otherwise.
Section 402(b) of the BCL permits a New York corporation to include in its certificate of incorporation a
provision eliminating the potential monetary liability of a director to the corporation or its shareholders for breach of
fiduciary duty as a director, provided that such provision shall not eliminate the liability of a director (i) for acts or
omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (ii) for improper
payment of dividends, or (iii) for any transaction from which the director receives an improper personal benefit.
Moog’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation includes the provisions permitted by Section 402(b) of the BCL.
Moog’s By-Laws provide that Moog shall indemnify such directors and officers against expenses,
judgments, fines or amounts paid in settlement in connection with any action, suit or proceeding, or threat thereof, to
the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
Moog has indemnification agreements with its directors. These agreements provide that directors are
covered under Moog’s directors and officers liability insurance, indemnify directors to the extent permitted by law
and advance to directors funds to cover expenses subject to reimbursement if it is later determined indemnification is
not permitted.
ITEM 7. Exemption from Registration Claimed.
Not applicable.
ITEM 8. Exhibits.
The exhibits to this Registration Statement are described in the Exhibit Index below.
ITEM 9. Undertakings.
(a)
Moog hereby undertakes:
(1)
To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective
amendment to this Registration Statement:
(i)
To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;
(ii)
To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of
the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the
aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the Registration Statement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of
securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the
estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant
to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the
maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective
registration statement.
(iii)
To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not
previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in the Registration
Statement; provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be
included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished
to the Commission by Moog pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by
reference in this Registration Statement.
(2)
That for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such posteffective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and
the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(3)
To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the
securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
(b)
Moog hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act,
each filing of Moog’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act, (and, where
applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Exchange Act)
that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement
relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the
initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c)
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to
directors, officers and controlling persons of Moog pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, Moog has
been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the
Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities
(other than the payment by Moog of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of Moog in
the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, Moog will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been
settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question of whether such
indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final
adjudication of such issue.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, Moog certifies that it has reasonable grounds to
believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Registration Statement
to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in East Aurora, New York on August 5,

Re:

)
We are delivering this opinion at your request in connection with the registration by Moog Inc. (the “Company”)
under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder (the “Act”), of 2,000,000] shares of the
Company’s Class A Common Stock, with a par value of $1.00 and 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s Class B Common Stock,
with a par value of $1.00, (the “Shares”), for issuance and sale pursuant to the above-referenced registration statement (the
“Registration Statement”) under the Company’s 2014 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”).
The opinion set forth in this letter is based upon (1) our review of (a) the Registration Statement, (b) the Plan,
(c) originals, or copies authenticated to our satisfaction, of the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, its Restated
By-laws, as amended, and records of certain of its corporate proceedings and (d) such other certificates, opinions and
instruments as we have deemed necessary (items 1(a) through (d) being collectively the “Reviewed Documents”) and (2) our
review of such published sources of law as we have deemed necessary.
We have assumed without any inquiry or other investigation (a) the legal capacity of each natural person, (b) the
accuracy on the date of this letter as well as the date made of each statement as to any factual matter contained in any of the
Reviewed Documents, (c) the genuineness of each signature on any of the Reviewed Documents, the completeness of each of
the Reviewed Documents, the authenticity of each of the Reviewed Documents submitted to us as an original, the conformity to
the original of each of the Reviewed Documents submitted to us as a copy and the authenticity of the original of each of the
Reviewed Documents submitted to us as a copy and (d) that, when issued in accordance with the Plan, appropriate certificates
complying with applicable law evidencing the Shares will be properly executed or the Shares will be uncertificated shares
complying with applicable law.
Based upon the foregoing, it is our opinion that the Shares have been duly authorized, and when issued in accordance
with the Plan, will be validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.
We hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement.
Very truly yours,
HODGSON RUSS LLP
