In the event of an incident or a situation where your system may become unstable we aim to help you. In the first instance you should secure the area around the aircraft by at least a 10 metre exclusion zone. If possible locate where the rocket break out panel is positioned, (this should be marked by a yellow and black striped decal) Always ensure you have the safety pin installed in both the release handle and the rocket housing when working on or around the system.

You can make contact by phone or email and explain the situation, we may be able to offer help without attending, however If you need us to come to site and take action fees will be incurred.

6 Year Overhaul

It is possible if you have any engineering skills to remove the system from your aircraft yourself. The PDF will provide more information about this but if you have any doubts please contact me for more details.


This PDF will give you an idea of the costs of having your system serviced. Please note that due to Euro exchange rates and shipping charges post Brexit these costs can vary from time to time, you should ask for a detailed quote at the time of having your system serviced. Turnaround times also vary between 5-8 weeks depending on time of year and workloads.
