VVIP & Private
Our covers are designed to be fitted quickly and safely. There’s a simple truth –it doesn’t matter how clever the materials or how good it looks, if they are not easy and fast to fit the covers will not be used. Air Covers have been fitting covers to helicopters since 2006 – from R22s to S92s. We have listened and we’ve learned more than most.
