All of our custom flight cables meet or exceed all DOD, MIL-SPEC, and FAA specifications. We are DOD certified (QML listed) to fabricate flight cable assemblies to MIL-DTL-6117 specifications or we can manufacture to your custom specifications. Our flight cables are produced with standard AN or MS type fittings. They are also pre-stretched and proof loaded in accordance with MIL-DTL-5688.
We also manufacture and certify cable assemblies to the NAS302 through NAS310 standards. If you need cable assemblies requiring special non-standard terminals, we can quickly make them to your specifications or old cable using our precision machine shop, inspection system, and quality-controlled processes.
To enhance the longevity of your flight control cables, we also offer several industry standard corrosion preventatives. Our custom cable assemblies are manufactured using the same materials and quality as our FAA-PMA products, however custom flight cables are not FAA-PMA approved.

Our extensive stock of cable and fittings allow us to provide expedited delivery to support your needs for most orders.
