    Plane covers

    Hello group,

    I am in the market for a good cover for my plane. The plane is based in New
    Hampshire so I would like the most protection for the plane as is possible
    in a cover. I would like the cover to be long enough on the sides to cover
    the static ports too.

    Does anyone have a recommendation on who to use for a good cover. I have a
    200 HP, fixed gear, 1970, A24 Mouse. I am told this is the same body as the
    Sierra. My SN is MA-367.

    Thank you,

    Scott Flood

    Plane covers

    I've had a Kennon cover for 6 years and it's been great. I also got cowl
    plugs from them and they're still in great shape.

    Scott,

    Our Sundowner is based at KLEB (Lebanon, NH). We have a cover from Ground Tech (http://www.planecover.com/), and it fits really well - it's a beautifully crafted cover, and we are very happy with it. When the plane was living on the ramp (we now have a hangar for it), the cover eliminated the little bit of water leaking in through the door seals. And in summer it keeps the plane cool.

    A friend of mine has a Bruce's cover (for a Baron) and it never really seems to fit snugly. Generally when you walk onto a ramp you can see the difference between the Ground Tech covers (they fit really nicely and tightly) and the Bruce's covers (which flap around in the wind).

    When you're up in the area, feel free to stop by and check out the cover. Just let me know - you can e-mail me off-list at andreas.bentz@dartmouth.edu .

    I think Ground Tech has several options for its covers, such as fleece lining for the cover - in our experience that's really not necessary; and in fact there's a question about whether the lining traps dirt and then scratches your windshield with it. I would call the guy who makes the covers and talk to him - he does know what he's doing. (We also have a pair of cowl plugs - intake covers from the same company and they fit equally well and seem to be better made - they have anti-slip rubberized cloth around the edges - than any others that I have seen.)

    Plane Cover

    I just recently got a cover from Ground Tech (Planecovers) too.

    I've only had it on the plane for two weeks. It fits EXTREMELY well. I have the same opinion of Bruce's covers. The one(s) I've seen don't fit nearly as well as the ones from Groundtech. I bought the complete lining. The cover is fairly heavy. I do NOT think it will reach back to the static ports. You can talk to Jim (owner) but you're probably back past antennas and maybe the fin.

    I also have the cowl plugs and the tail boot. Got them last year. Both fit very well and are very well made. The first two annuals I had bird's nests in the tail. Don't expect that this year. I've looked in the tail (from the baggage compartment) a couple times and don't see any nests.

    Don't know what color your plane is but Goundtech was have a sale ($50 off) on green covers. Don't know if it's still on. There must have been a half dozen shades of green or more to choose from.

    Scott - I like Plane cover's. You get personal service. You deal directly wit the owner and also get a free gift with your cover. Go to http://www.planecover.com/redirects/plane_finder.html to order your cover. I chose the standing seam design. I cover my airplane even inside the hanger.

    Take care,

    Plane covers

    Hi Scott,

    You might want to do a search either on here or on the BAC site. This
    has been discussed before.

    I have A23-24 MA-170, which I suspect is the same fuselage as yours.

    In any case, I got a cover from Ground Tech www.planecover.com. It
    fits well, was shipped promptly, and the owner was easy to deal with.
    I got the lining and had the seams put on the outside. I bought mine
    about 3 years ago and it shows no sign of wearing out soon. I chose
    this cover because I liked the attachement strap system better than
    the others.

    Having said that, there seems to be some healthy competition in the
    cover market. I have read good things about Kennon covers and
    Bruce's. So, you might want to do what I did and shop a bit.

    I don't think anybody makes a cover that extends to the static ports.
    However, you might ask if any of the cover makers can do that for
    you. Expect extra cost. If you are having problems with water in the
    static line, the usual cure for that is inside the fuselage. Some
    portion of the static line needs to be elevated above the level of
    the static ports to let water run out before it gets to the
    instruments.

    Best regards,

    i have been very happy with my Bruce custom covers for my B24 Sierra. i have the canopy cover and the cowl cover. They velcro together and work slick. They do not extend to static ports...but fit like a glove.
