UH-60: Get Covers for Your Aircraft

Aircraft covers do a great job protecting the airframe and its internal components from environmental damage.

Covering your utility helicopter protects against corrosion, water damage, UV damage, FOD, dirt, sand, snow, and debris from rotor wash, and reduces heat-soaking and windshield delamination.

When using the covers, make sure you take care of them because they’re not cheap. Cleaning them during scheduled aircraft washing and following the cleaning and storage requirements of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) should keep them in good shape.

Here is a short list of covers you can use when your aircraft isn’t in operation.
