Leading Provider of Fall Safety Solutions For Aircraft & Hangars

As the leading provider of aircraft fall arrest systems, we offer a wide range of solutions designed specifically for performing maintenance and repairs for both fixed-wing and rotary aircraft. Our team of safety experts has designed and installed aviation fall protection systems all over the world for commercial, corporate, and military aircraft.

From simple preflight checks to full phase checks, our user-friendly and non-intrusive systems are designed to service aircrafts both in the hangar or on the flight line. Our systems provide continuous and uncompromising safety while working at height on the aircraft and meet all OSHA 1910 and ANSI Z359  requirements.

The design of fall protection solutions in hangars and protecting those employees while working on top of aircraft requires a full understanding of maintenance operations including aircraft positions, types of aircraft, future requirements and a thorough understanding of the job tasks and number of technicians required to perform the work.

Based on the design of the hangar and the operational requirements, FLS partners with airlines, aircraft manufacturers, MRO and design build contractors to develop a facility-wide fall protection solution to meet the needs of aircraft maintainers.


The FLS’ design team consists of state registered professional structural engineers, AutoCAD designers and field engineers. Our team models the aircraft positions in relation to the hangar structure and designs each fall protection system to provide the maximum coverage and safety. All fall protection solutions are engineered in accordance with ANSI Z359.6, ASCE‐7, IBC, and OSHA 1910 and /or 1926 standards.


To maintain the highest level of quality all FLS fall protection solutions are manufactured and supplied through our ISO 9001:2015 quality management program. Every piece and manufactured part is thoroughly inspected and processed in accordance with our stringent quality standards. Each project is shipped complete and ready for installation to minimize any impact to our customer’s maintenance schedule.


Installing fall protection in a Hangar requires careful planning and coordination. Our construction team’s 24 years of experience in working around aircraft and in aircraft hangar environments ensures that the construction phase is done safely and efficiently with as little down time as possible. With over a dozen field technicians available we can pull together resources to complete even the most complicated projects in days versus weeks.


Every fall protection system must be inspected, serviced and recertified periodically. Our field service team of coordinators, inspection technicians and recertification engineers proactively help our customers keep their fall protection systems serviced and up to date with the latest standards and requirements.

customer testimonial

Frank (United Airlines)

It has been a little over a year since FLS installed our overhead fall protection systems. The system is awesome and technicians still tell me it’s cool! When I train someone, I always say look up, everything in yellow is part of our fall protection system. It is said that the people make the company – FLS is a true testament to this. Their fall protection specialists are knowledgeable and experienced in their field and it shows in their work.
