Standard Inflatable Shelters

We carry standard shapes and sizes for most mainstream aircraft. Some held in stock, most made to order.

Our original standard inflatable shelters quickly encapsulate the engine, windscreen and fuselage of most aircraft in minutes making it the smarter alternative to the traditional aircraft maintenance hangar. Fully protect both people and planes. 

Quick and easy to install. Compact enough to fly and store anywhere.
