IglooMX® COBRA Engine Change Shelter


AOG incidents can lead to costly delays and scheduling difficulties for operators. The patent protected IglooMX® Inflatable Engine Change Shelter system provides the ideal solution for such events.

This “hangar-in-a-bag” system reduces downtime to a minimum and enables the AOG team to get the aircraft back in the air in the least possible time, thereby saving on costly hangar rentals and lost man hours.

The IglooMX® Shelter system is small enough to ship as part of the fly-away kit. It may be set up on either engine to encapsulate both engine and pylon. By following the simple installation instructions provided, this kit can be installed in a matter of minutes by a crew of 4-6 people.

Once in place, the shelter system will boost your maintenance team’s productivity by providing a warm and safe environment in which to work.

These shelters feature specially designed fabrics that are both lightweight and tough, providing excellent abrasion and tear resistance. The unique materials are also fire retardant and resistant to hydraulic fluid and fuels, ensuring that they remain functional for many years.

The IglooMX® is supplied in a storage bag on wheels, making it easy to move around on the apron. In the unlikely event that the shelter becomes damaged while in use, an on-site repair kit is supplied as part of the package.

The IglooMX® kit can be deflated and stored away in around 20 minutes.
