Kennon Wind Spoilers:
An Interview with Ron Kensey, President of Kennon Aircraft Covers

The loss of more than 200 G.A. aircraft at Florida airports from high winds in February, 1998, prompted Kennon Aircraft Covers to bring its newest aircraft protection product to market. "Kennon Wind Spoilers" consist of a row of soft fiber-filled spoilers sewn onto a strip of mesh that attaches to the wing with straps and quick-release fasteners. They stop the wing from generating lift in high winds, and help prevent the kind of tie-down breakage and aircraft upsets that took such an awful toll at Opa-Locka and North Perry. The new Wind Spoilers are similar to Kennon's classic Spoiler Mesh Wing Covers but with three big differences: they're less bulky, quicker to install and remove, and cost just $89 (compared with $295 for full covers). AVweb recently talked to Kennon's Ron Kensey about this new low-cost wind protection.
