aero-contact has been developing aircraft equipment for 20 years now.
A mile stone was the internal water tank system for the Mi-14 fire fighter helicopters. But we are not limited to developments in the aviation sector only. There is a wide range from Aviation to Mining Industry and Fire Fighting where our products are used.
On customers request aero-contact manufactures various equipment based on customers need and data.
The scope of special equipment is wide spread, from a single airplane tow bar to a medium or high performance hydraulic ground power unit. We also loan our 28 V DC hydraulic gpu to our European customers.
