Jet\Brella – The Company
With an unwavering eye towards innovation, quality, and personal service, Jet Brella was founded in 1995 at Van Nuys Airport California. Jet Brella has continued to grow over the years to become the premier global supplier of high quality inlet covers. Utilizing the finest materials from around the world and the best southern California aerospace coatings specialists, each “Brella” is manufactured, assembled, and tested to exacting standards in our own plant.
In 1996 Jet Brella Inc. became certified by and offered as standard equipment on the Gulfstream V. Today, Jet Brella products are approved for use by Boeing and Falcon and offered as an OE item by Gulfstream and Embarer. Our inlet, exhaust, and APU covers are now found on many Fortune 500 Company’s aircraft such as Berkshire Hathaway/Net Jet, GM, Ford, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumman, IBM, HP, and The Limited. We have also supplied our products to the U.S.A.F 89th Airlift Wing and the U.S. Coast Guard.
Since those early days, Jet Brella Inc. has never strayed far from its roots. Today we still specialize in inlet, exhaust, and APU covers for corporate and commercial aircraft. Jet Brellas are still ‘the inlet covers pilots love to use’.
Jet\Brella – the Product
Beginning in the early 1990’s, the original umbrella style Inlet cover was conceived as a durable, lightweight, easily stored, and pilot friendly answer to portable FOD protection. In response to a Gulfstream IV Chief Pilot’s request for smaller sized engine protection, started with a golf umbrella and an idea and built the first “Brella” prototype. The Jet\Brella team solved a diverse range of problems that included shape retention under compression, engine spinner inner-action, and back pressure relief on larger engines, to inlet ring contact requirements, weatherproofing, corrosion, and material durability issues.
Today, Jet\Brella offers an extensive line of state-of-the-art inlet, exhaust, and APU covers. They fit the vast majority of business and commercial jet aircraft from Cessna Citation’s to Boeing 767’s. Made from lightweight, yet durable, materials with a custom fit for each model engine, today’s line of Jet\Brella products provide the best protection available for your engines from the ravages of weather, animals, blowing debris, snow, sand, volcanic ash and tarmac jet blast FOD.
