Design and Construction

The InstoneAir design department is constantly updating and improving the horse stalls to incorporate additional features and make use of new materials and technology.

Various design options are available for each model. This means that an airline’s specific requirements can be incorporated into any design.

The company employs structural, stress, aeronautical and design engineers for continual research and development. The use of a CAD system assists with product design, development and analysis, as well as the suitability of using new, lighter composites.

InstoneAir holds 21G manufacturing approval.

Equipment Maintenance

All InstoneAir equipment is manufactured to the most robust specifications in order to minimise damage.

Damage is rarely caused by animals, however it is impossible to prevent misuse of forklifts at airports and therefore damage does sometimes occur.

Maintenance and repairs are carried out at our UK overhaul facility under the supervision of the company’s CAA licensed engineers.

Repair packs and spares can be dispatched at short notice to enable maintenance to be carried out in the field. We also have repair facilities in Australia, Hong Kong, Middle East, New Zealand and USA.

An InstoneAir mobile maintenance unit is on call in the UK to carry out immediate repairs at airports such as LHR, LGW, LTN and STN. This unit is able to carry out routine maintenance and repairs.

InstoneAir holds Part 145 Maintenance Approval.


Airworthiness approvals

Designed and manufactured by the company in the UK, the InstoneAir horse containers comply with CAA, EASA and FAA Regulations.

The Company holds 21G Manufacturing Approval, Part 145 Maintenance Approval and EASA ADOA Design Approval.


In addition the containers are approved or comply with regulations issued by Government Veterinary Authorities and welfare organisations including ATA, AFCD (Hong Kong), AQIS (Australia), DAFF (Australia), DEFRA (UK), IATA, USDA (USA) etc.
