Cargo Accessory Division

ATA 25

Cargo nets are noted as one of the most abused component parts within the aviation industry. They are commonly perceived as no more than a simple barrier to prevent cargo loads from falling off pallets, or to prevent damage to passenger luggage. It can come as a surprise to discover they are in fact a crucial piece of aircraft equipment specifically designed to restrain any contents during extreme flight conditions. Nets are designed, tested and manufactured to meet extremely high load conditions. This is a requirement they must always meet during their operational life.

Aircraft carrying cargo nets require them to be in an airworthy condition, exactly the same as all other components on board. With this in mind, Oakenhurst’s Cargo Accessory Division is equipped and ready to inspect and repair any nets to the high standard we have a reputation for. The need to discard and replace with new is no longer the only option for aircraft operators. We can repair them and allow aircraft operators the choice to return their nets to the necessary airworthy condition. All repairs are carried out to the manufacturer’s specifications with complete understanding and to established procedures.
