BOOT 172-182 STEERING (KEVLAR)
Steering Rod Boots for Cessna Aircraft
These bad boys can take the abuse!
The steering rod boots on the Cessna aircraft have a big job to do. They must keep out exhaust gases and prevent smoke and fumes from entering the cockpit in the event of an engine fire while tolerating the constant air pulses caused by the rotating propeller.
McFarlane steering rod boots are manufactured with a black Kevlar/fiberglass blend fabric. The fatigue resistance of Kevlar is uniquely mated with the fire resistance of fiberglass. This is a super tough, high temperature fabric that will provide many years of outstanding performance.
