The most dangerous place for a helicopter is on the ground. Damage can occur due to the humidity, freezing temperatures or UV damage from the sun’s rays. The body of the aircraft can be eroded by dust particles, sand particles, or even sea salt depending on its location whilst not in use.
At Cunningham Covers we have designed and manufactured Helicopter covers from specialised materials that won’t cause damage to the surface of the helicopter and protects the asset from the elements in even the toughest conditions. These clever protective covers are water resistant, UV resistant, they reflect heat and are incredibly strong under tension.
Helicopter covers reduce the amount of downtime required for maintenance and repair. Not only does this save money, but also maximises the availability of the aircraft for when it is most needed. This is particularly important for military crafts or mountain and coastguard rescue helicopters which need to be deployed at short notice. Once an emergency call comes in first responders can’t be held back by a complicated cover not being released from the helicopter. Our covers are designed with the user in mind so specialised quick release buckles can be used to allow for the cover to be easily taken off. Our covers can be easily rolled up and stored for next use.
Each Helicopter cover is designed to fit the exact specifications of the helicopter to offer the greatest level of protection. They are durable, easy to fit and remove in a short space of time. Cunningham Helicopter covers can also be designed to match the colours of the aircraft, or branded with logos and marketing messages, or covers can be designed which act as a camouflage for the aircraft so that it blends into its environment and does not attract unwanted attention. Our covers are specially manufactured so they don’t damage the helicopter when being fitted; the covers easily glide over the surface without scratching or damaging the expensive paint work or sensitive equipment.
