Tanis Aircraft Products announced that the company has entered into a business partnership with Bruce’s Custom Covers to fabricate Tanis brand insulated aircraft covers for protection of aircraft in harsh and demanding winter conditions. Tanis is known as the leader in providing aircraft preheat systems to the global aviation industry. Bruce’s Custom Covers is the renowned global leader in supplying aircraft covers.

With over 8,500 patterns, Bruce’s Custom Covers offers the most comprehensive line of custom made covering systems for airplanes, jets, helicopters, and gliders. Together, Tanis and Bruce’s will manufacture and sell the aviation industry’s broadest line of custom-fitted aircraft covers—both insulated and non-insulated—for a full range of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft.

Operators in cold climates have known for years that preheating is a winter season best practice that is mandated by both engine manufacturers and certain government jurisdictions. Combining preheat with insulated covers not only enhances operational safety but saves on operational costs, enhances scheduling and decreases downtime during winter operations. Preheat and insulated covers fit hand-in-glove as a system to increase the efficiency of preheating an aircraft. A complete preheat system combined with an insulated cover allows an operator to keep both aircraft and engine warm, thereby minimizing ground time. In combining forces, the Tanis and Bruce’s partnership delivers cost-effective solutions for saving money and increasing aircraft utility and longevity.

Bob Krueger, President of Tanis, commented, “We are pleased to be partnering with Bruce’s Custom Covers as we consider them the best in the industry. Bruce’s has developed patterns and methods of manufacturing that really work. The quality of a Tanis designed insulated custom cover built by Bruce’s is second-to-none.”

Covers are available for Engine Cowlings, Propeller/Spinner, Fuselage, Cabin/Canopy, Wings, Empennage/Tail, and Cowl Plugs. Covers protect engines and propellers from frost and condensation, and paint and windows from harmful ultraviolet light and weather anomalies such as hail and airborne debris.
