Aircraft Ground Support Equipment Seattle

Seattle enjoys the coveted responsibility of being home to aerospace and defense industries which generate an economic impact of $70B each year.  Seattle, itself, is home to the most massive aircraft and aerospace supply chain in the US.  In fact, Boeing has been building iconic passenger aircraft at three production facilities in the Seattle area since World War II.

The research, development, and manufacturing of aircraft and aerospace components is part of what Seattle is famous for.  Facilities such as these that specialize in aircraft-component handling rely on Morgan Aero which distributes aircraft ground support equipment to the US Air Force, Boeing, Airbus, and most major airlines throughout the world.

Since 1964, our worm-drive hoists, lever hoists, hand-chain hoists, and sling lifting systems have been designed to meet heavy-lift needs that range from removing aircraft engines to installing cargo doors to maneuvering landing gear.   From Seattle to Phoenix to Chicago and around the world, our aircraft ground support equipment is known and trusted for its durability, performance, and dependability.

The functionality and safety requirements for utilizing hoists and sling lift systems as part of aircraft ground support equipment are demanding.  Seattle aircraft and aerospace facilities have the assurance that our products and services will meet their highly-specialized requirements.

Morgan Aero’s aircraft ground support equipment is designed to help Seattle aircraft and aviation facilities maintain safety compliances, boost productivity, and reduce lead times – inefficiencies, of which, can be resource-intensive and time-intensive to resolve.

Our Aircraft Ground Support Equipment Keeps Seattle Moving

Seattle installations – whether general manufacturing or aircraft or aviation-related – reap the benefits of our:

Aircraft ground support Aerosafe worm drive hoists – One thousand of our Aerosafe hoists are used within manufacturing and maintenance installations, of all types – from aircraft and aerospace facilities to general manufacturing arenas.  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 these hoists for engine and landing gear installation and removal.  When heavy components for Boeing and Airbus must be handled with precisioned care, aviation arenas trust the Morgan Aero name for their specialized needs.

Aircraft ground support lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a distinct advantage for Seattle aircraft installations.  Air-cooled means heavy-lifting can proceed, uninterrupted, with 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

Additionally, 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.  Seattle aircraft installations 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 and aerospace lifts are utilized for component manufacturing, sub-assembly, final assembly, and testing.  Aircraft-affiliated installations, also, utilize our sling lifting systems for airline and military aircraft maintenance, repair, inspections, the lifting of disabled aircraft, and more.

The strict requirements for hoisting equipment to be used as a component of aircraft ground support are very demanding in terms of function and safety attributes.  Our support equipment’s reliability is unquestioned and designed to help ensure your Seattle installation maintains enhanced safety protocols, optimizes production, and minimizes lead times – inefficiencies, of which, can be resource-intensive and time-intensive to resolve.
