Can aircraft owners live without water?
We say Yes!
Statistics prove that significant water/fuel contamination is due to an outside source.

STAY-SEALED has been researching and documenting this age-old problem of water/fuel
contamination in general aviation aircraft. This research went back to the 1960's when the FAA and
NTSB started collecting data on all aircraft accidents. Aging aircraft, corroded fuel tank filler ports,
deteriorated fuel cap seals and the cost of replacing aircraft parts are all major factors of this deadly
STAY-SEALED decided to take on this problem by designing and developing a sealing fuel cap cover.
This lightweight, easy to install cover fits over and attaches to
the existing cap. When installed,
it creates a watertight seal around the filler
port. Since the cover is to be
installed at the same time as the
pitot tube cover and the other factory
safety devices, there is no need for
expensive STC's or other approvals.
The patented sealing and locking features have been in development for two years. The testing took this
device through hurricane winds and rain. The cover has been temperature tested in freezing rain and
snow. The Solar Light Lab has been testing this product under the ASTM G155 accelerated UV light and
weather standards. STAY-SEALED is pleased to say that NO deterioration of the seal or cover was noted
after five years of UV light & weather.
The aircraft insurance industry has reviewed this product and confirms the need for such a device based
on the FAA data that was compiled.
Several models have been developed which will fit most of the single engine aircraft fleet. The
STAY-SEALED cap is now available in two Cessna models and the Piper model.
