While an aircraft is parked for extended periods of time, the engines are exposed to the elements and are vulnerable to potential damage and unnecessary wear and tear that can be caused by:
- Winds: either high or low winds will cause the fans to continuously rotate (wind milling), resulting in premature wear out of the bearings.
- Bird nests: Birds can take as little as one day to begin making a nest.
- Storms: If parked outside during a storm, sand, snow or hail can blast the inlet/exhaust, damaging the rim and fan, and reducing the efficiency and life of the engine.
Simply and quickly protect from costly damages and grounding with one of our Aircraft Engine “Nacelle” Covers.
