Inflatable Intake Covers
About Inflatable Intake Covers
Checkmate Flexible Engineering’s jet intake covers – also known as intake blanks – have been developed to provide aircraft engines with lightweight protection from damage caused by foreign objects and the elements. We supply inflatable intake covers to a number of NATO air forces, and all of our products are NATO codified.
Combining a lightweight design with the ability to be deflated and collapsed quickly for easy stowage, our intake covers have been chosen for the EH101 Merlin Helicopter. The non-metallic, light materials used for construction means that damage is minimised if the covers are ingested or blown across the deck or airfield into other aircraft or personnel.
The company’s BS EN 9001 2015 quality assurance system is registered with SGS, a UKAS approved company.
