2. Which Fabric do I need?
Very much our flagship product, this really is a top permanent outdoor solution for metal and composite airframes. We have examples with 18 years+ in operation. Waterproof, non breathable but very tough and UV resistant, not as compact as other solutions when folded away but this is not a touring cover. SoftTouch Odyssey features a fully integrated soft lining.
A great outdoor solution for your aircraft. Fully breathable and water repellent it has the strength and performance needed for 24/7 outdoor storage. Glazed areas are lined with a soft Polyester lining to protect your windshield. Stratus Pro can and should be cleaned carefully to instructions and waterproofed every 3-5 years. Long lasting – we have examples still out there 14 years later.
Similar to Stratus Pro but lighter in construction and so is offered as a longer term touring solution. This is not a choice for permanent use outside because of its lighter construction.
It folds up smaller than Stratus Pro and offers a slight reduction in stowage space and weight. Water repellent and fully breathable, its ideal for weeks and even months at a time outside while touring or if you are temporarily pushed out of the hanger. Glazed areas are lined with a soft Polyester lining to protect your windshield.
These covers are completely focused on indoor/hanger use, so all fastenings are geared towards speed, light weight and ease of installation. Great for keeping bird and insect mess off your lovely clean airframe. Peached surface is kind to the surface, breathable and water repellent and very compact when folded away.
Stratus is perfect for those who need an easy throw on super light weight touring cover that performs for short periods outside. Its there to keep the sun out and the showers out of the cockpit area. Compact and lightweight are its main qualities, a gentle “peached” surface protects the glazed areas from chaffing.
3. Complete the Fitting Guide
Aerials are often overlooked by owners when ordering covers and it’s the most commonly adjusted item on a cover after you receive it and fit it for the first time. Of course it is not a problem as we simply take the cover back, adjust it to your requirements and send it back to you.
But all this takes time and effort and a small extra cost, so to avoid this situation a little diligence at the early stages reaps rewards. The PDF has illustrations of a typical aircraft, High Wing, Low Wing, Twin or single the principles remain the same; we establish a datum and measure from it to the Item (Transponder & Com Aerials, Temp Probes, GPS Antennae, Static Wicks, ELT, Pitot, Tank Breather etc.) along the surface of the aircraft.
Often more than one measurement is required to place the item in three dimensional space so we combine it’s longitudinal value with its Lateral value (taken from the fuselage centreline or wing root.
It is worth noting we have many of the standard points already logged on our patterns but these days there are so many additions such as ELT’s and multiple GPS antennae that we cannot account for them.
The final area worth bearing in mind are cover straps: (almost) every cover needs strapping on to an airframe and these pass underneath the fuselage, wings and tailplane, more often than not they miss Transponder antennae, Pitots and belly mounted ADF Sensors but they can be worth noting.
