Protect aircraft with covers.

[ILLUTRATION OMITTED]

Mechanics, using your AH-64 aircraft covers keeps maintenance costs low, not to mention protecting your aircraft from nasty weather.

If your covers have disappeared or worn out over time, all is not lost.

Order the covers from the approved TM 1-1520-Longbow/Apache, IETM. Look under Peculiar Ground Support Equipment (PGSE), Flyaway Equipment Kit, and the Flyaway Equipment Kit RPSTL.

A second location to look is in Aircraft General Maintenance, Protective Cover Installation Section. Here is a short list of basic covers you'll need. The list also includes alternative NSNs, other flyaway equipment and peculiar ground support equipment (PSGC).
