Aircraft Ground Support Equipment Indianapolis

Aviation is a key player in Indiana’s economy, and Indianapolis is in the thick of it.  Aviation and aircraft installations dot the landscape.  Businesses, here, provide a cornucopia of aviation-related activities ranging from offering fleets of private jets for corporate jet charter services, flight-training schools, aerial patrols and flight tours and, of course, aircraft maintenance and manufacturing installations.

Maintenance and repair are inevitable in any industry involved with mechanics, and this is where Morgan Aero makes its mark.  Morgan Aero proudly serves aviation-related venues from San Francisco to Indianapolis to Chicago and around the world.  We specialize in manufacturing, modifying, and maintaining aircraft ground support equipment and have been doing so since 1964.

lever chain hoist

Our worm-drive hoists, lever hoists, hand-chain hoists, and sling lift systems remain indispensable for Indianapolis venues where heavy lifting is a critical component of aircraft production lines, aircraft maintenance, and aircraft testing.  Morgan Aero is ready to become your partner to help your Indianapolis installation’s increased ability to execute your projects on time.

Whether handling a delicate instrument panel for a Bombardier Global 7500 jet or positioning a helicopter’s rotary system in place or removing a Boeing 777 jet engine, any part or component must be maneuvered with extreme care – there is no room for error.  Along with that comes the issue of efficiency during production which cannot be compromised.

Our aircraft ground support equipment translates into optimized safety in the work environment and reduced lead times.  That means boosted ROIs for Indianapolis businesses that must meet those critical deadlines and satisfy customers’ expectations.

Our Ground Support Equipment – Streamlining Movement

Morgan Aero’s ground support equipment proves its unsurpassed ability to lift, lower, position and control the movement and maneuvering of everything for jet engines to wing sections to landing gear – with incredible ease and efficiency.  We offer a generous array of ground support equipment including:

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

We manufacture the Aerosafe worm drive hoists for Boeing and, virtually, all major airlines worldwide  for engine and landing gear installation and removal.  When heavy aircraft components for Boeing and Airbus must be handled with exactitude, aerospace and defense corporations trust the Morgan Aero name for their aircraft, aerospace, and military aviation ground-support needs.

Aircraft ground support lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a distinct advantage for your Indianapolis aircraft installation.  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.  Indianapolis aircraft facilities will not find a higher caliber APU hoist, of this type, anywhere else on the world market!

 Aircraft ground support sling lifting systems – Our aircraft sling lifting systems are utilized for component manufacturing, sub-assembly, final assembly, and testing.  Facilities – locally, nationally, and internationally – utilize these 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 and safety – Morgan Aero’s product quality and dependability are second to none.  Morgan Aero’s ground support equipment is designed to ensure your Indianapolis business maintains safety compliances, enhances productivity, and reduces lead times – inefficiencies, of which, can be resource-intensive and time-intensive to resolve.
