Aerosystems offers a line of safety-certified products for Fuel Management.
Our array of Fuel Caps products has been designed to meet and often exceed the stringent fuel safety requirements of the aircraft and motorcycle industry. We are proud to have active and certified parts, including flush type fuel caps and adapters. Aerosystems fuel filler caps are used to lock, seal, and act as an identifier for the gravity fill port of an aircraft fuel tank.
To fuel the aircraft, the caps are manually actuated by lifting and turning the handle, which vents the fuel tank. The cap is then removed from its mating adapter, allowing the aircraft to be refueled. The cap remains attached to the aircraft by a lanyard. Once refueling is complete, the cap is inserted back into the adapter and the handle is actuated back to a closed position, which effectively reseals the gravity fill refuel port.
Our technology is grounded on decades of proven on-wing time and includes:
- Airplane Fuel caps,
- Helicopter Fuel Caps,
- UAV Fuel Caps,
- Mating adapters,
- Gravity fillers caps.
Aerosystems flush fitting caps draw inspiration from fuel filler caps used on American WW2 combat aircraft. Popular with motorcycle manufacturers for many years, Ducati and others have incorporated these caps in their fuel tank designs. After being seen on the Ferrari cars, automotive concept and prototype car stylists quickly caught on to the idea.
All Aerosystems Caps are customizable with Locking Keys, Hinges, Lanyards (metallic beads or polyurethane), Coloured Anodization and Markings.
