Aircraft Ground Support Equipment Houston | Morgan Aero

Houston can boast of a plethora of aviation-related facilities located within its boundaries – 500 of them, to be exact. From within that goliath number, are a vast array of aircraft, aerospace, and space vehicle manufacturing facilities. Those facilities rely on hoists and sling lifting systems for aircraft repair, maintenance, parts removal and installation, and other aircraft ground support services.

Addressing heavy-lifting scenarios utilizing heavy-lifting equipment takes not only highly-skilled workers, it takes Morgan Aero’s ground support equipment that enables meticulous accuracy and movement control. Ergonomic designs add additional precision when gripping and releasing loads – from landing gear and wing sections to cargo doors and jet engines.

Ground Support Equipment Houston Facilities Rely On

Morgan Aero offers Houston aviation installations a wide variety of ground support equipment:

Aerosafe worm drive hoists – One thousand of our Aerosafe hoists are used within manufacturing and maintenance installations, of all types, around the world. Our Aerosafe worm drive hoists are offered as manual or pneumatic models.

We manufacture the Aerosafe worm drive hoists for Boeing and, virtually, all major airlines worldwide who utilize our hoists for engine and landing gear installation and removal. When heavy aircraft components for Boeing and Airbus must be handled with delicate care and absolute precision, our aircraft ground support equipment ensures lifting challenges become lifting solutions!

Lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a distinct advantage for Houston’s aircraft installations. Air-cooled means heavy-lifting procedures can continue, uninterrupted, thanks to an unlimited number of motor starts. Pneumatic chain hoists lift heavy aircraft loads faster and more efficiently than electric chain hoist options.

Morgan Aero’s lever hoists and hand-chain hoists fulfill strict Boeing Hoist Specifications including:

  • M-7360-99-2574
  • M-7360-99-2714
  • M-MEAP-02-13789
  • 1-157306941-1
  • MIL-H-904J
  • appendix ‘A’ and CE certification standards

Morgan Aero developed the JM and JM-AP series of lever hoists for the Boeing 737 Advanced Generation Aircraft. We manufacture the APU hoist – the AP6108 chain-drive hoist unit – used by the USAF as well as major airlines across the globe. Houston aircraft installations will not find a higher caliber APU hoist, of this type, anywhere else on the world market!

Sling lifting systems – Our sling lifts are utilized for component manufacturing, sub-assembly, final assembly, and testing. Facilities around the world utilize these ground support systems for airline and military aircraft maintenance, repair, inspections, the lifting of disabled aircraft, and more.

The requirements for hoisting equipment as part of aircraft ground support are very strict regarding function, operability, and safety. Morgan Aero’s product quality and performance dependability are backed by almost 6 decades of expertise in the aerospace industry.

All our customers – locally, nationally, and globally – benefit from our commitment to adhere to the highest product and production standards via our Quality-Management System which is ISO 9001:2015 certified.
