Aircraft Ground Support Equipment San Antonio

When it comes to cities with a rich history of aviation, San Antonio is one of the most colorful.  The first flights involving military-owned aircraft originated here.  Whether it’s San Antonio or any other aviation-related city, the bottom line remains the same:  aircraft ground support equipment is paramount with keeping aircraft, of every type, air-worthy and in optimum flying condition.

After the passage of time, any given aircraft will require maintenance, whether it’s an overhaul or the simple replacement of various parts – this is where Morgan Aero comes in.  We remain a world-recognized leader for fabricating, customizing, and maintaining hoists and sling-lifting systems as part of aircraft ground support equipment inventory.  We cater to aviation facilities locally, coast-to-coast, and across the globe.

When everything from jet engines to landing gear to propellers to cargo doors must be removed, installed, transferred or positioned, our hoists and sling-lift systems deliver incredible exactitude and precision – there is no room for error.  From San Diego to San Antonio to New York and beyond, our aircraft ground support equipment is renowned for its robust durability, versatility, and reliability.

Almost Six Decades of Aircraft Ground Support Expertise

Since 1964, Morgan Aero has offered its expertise within the aerospace industry and general manufacturing arenas, offering lift and movement solutions and related support services.  Aircraft ground support equipment involves not just aircraft repair and maintenance but is also utilized when fighter jets and military helicopters must be loaded with weapons, missiles, and other critical components.  If there were a compiled list regarding how our aircraft ground support equipment is utilized in civilian and military applications, it would be a very long one.

Ground Support Equipment the Aircraft Industry Relies On

Morgan Aero offers San Antonio facilities a generous selection of aircraft ground support equipment, including:

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 & removal and a myriad of other operations.  When heavy aircraft components for Boeing and Airbus must be managed with the utmost precision, Morgan Aero is there to get the job done right!

Lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a radical advantage for San Antonio’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 very demanding 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.  San Antonio aircraft installations will not find a higher caliber APU hoist, of this type, anywhere else on the world market!

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

Our clients – locally, nationally, and internationally – have the assurance of our Quality-Management System being ISO 9001:2015 certified.  The ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely-recognized quality-management-system certification.
