All Aircraft: Avoid Rolling Catastrophes!

A chunk of wood is all that’s between you and potential disaster. All aircraft should be chocked whenever they’re parked, whether they’re in the hangar or on the flight line. An aircraft with no chock blocks could become a rolling catastrophe if the parking brake fails.

If you’re looking for some chock blocks, have your shop make what you need. Or you can order wood chock blocks with a cotton rope. Get a perfect fit for your aircraft with NSN 1730-00-294-3695 or NSN 1730-01-516-4899.

Make or order chock blocks
