In 1935, company founder James F. Boyle began Air Cruisers. Initially we made airships. The Air Cruisers name is directly based on this heritage product. In World War II our efforts focused on Life Preservers, Life Rafts and Barrage Balloons. Since then, virtually every significant development in the field of aviation inflatable safety technology has come from Air Cruisers.
Air Cruisers was the first to design and manufacture: inflatable aircraft evacuation slides and slide/rafts, one-person life raft, inflatable life vests helicopter utility floats and emergency inflatable floats, and extended service intervals for all such equipment. With over 75 years of innovative products and experience, Air Cruisers remains the industry standard for innovation in aviation inflatable safety technology.
Since 1987, Air Cruisers has been a subsidiary of the Zodiac Aerospace. Air Cruisers achieved a milestone accomplishment by receiving Boeing's Presidents Award for excellence twice; 1997 and 2003. This affirms our dedication to the aviation industry and our customer base. In 2013, Air Cruisers has changed its name to Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems to establish its presence as a member of the Zodiac Aerospace group.
Our goal is not just to meet our customers’ requirements, but to exceed them.
