Given FEC’s expertise with handling gear for transporting weapons and cargo on Navy ships, it’s not surprising that our background is well suited to provide similar equipment to other branches of the military. More specifically, FEC has furnished common ground support equipment (GSE) for the US Army and Air Force as well. Aviation GSE is utilized to assist in the transport, maintenance and service of aircraft in between flights. FEC has manufactured and tested jet engine trailers and helicopter engine maintenance stands consisting of various steel and aluminum weldment assemblies in accordance with the stringent requirements necessary for handling flight critical engines/components. See below for some examples of aviation GSE produced at our FEC plants.
