Trisoft Aircraft Covers has expanded into the GA market. Trisoft covers protect aircraft (for example, trailing edges, gear doors) and employees (prop tips, antennae), with a foam cover that stays in place, fits well, and is fuel and UV resistant, according to company officials.
Joe Garland, president and founder, saw the need for both kinds of protection when he ran an aircraft-washing business. “We saw aircraft damaged by very light contact with maintenance stands and ladders; and we were always aware of the injury potential posed by the sharp edges that are all over high-performance aircraft. Cheap and makeshift covers break down in sunlight; they dissolve in fuel; and sometimes they actually stick to the paint, causing as much damage as they prevent.”
The patented Trisoft covers are die- and waterjet-cut from foam in a high-visibility red color that vividly contrasts with most aircraft. Certain covers are furnished with “Remove Before Flight” tags.
