The patented AOS System utilizes a solid, deformable polymer as a suspension and shock absorbing medium. This new design shock absorber and suspension system in one puts an end to the "slingshot" effect in the rebound from hard landings, caused by the old design rubber shock rings / bungee cords. The use of titanium in the heavy duty design adds strength in all aspects of installation, operation and adverse loading conditions.
The AOSS is ground adjustable by the pilot in the instance of heavy loading of the aircraft. This adjustability also allows for compensation for landing gear fittings that may not be installed as accurately as one would desire.
Over the past two years there have been many more models of aircraft added to the Approved Models List (see opposite page) as well as additional models of the AOSS itself. Installation of the AOS System is pending for certain models of Maule aircraft as a separate STC.
The AOS System has been in the field for almost two years, and owner satisfaction has been extremely high. We hear almost weekly from pilot-owners who tell us that they are constantly amazed by how well the system performs.
There is no hype to the AOSS - it delivers what we promise.
