Affordable Costs for Airplane Shipping and Fuselage Transport

Shipping an airplane from one place to another isn't as simple as just flying it there. There are many reasons that companies and individuals choose to have their aircraft shipped by a heavy machinery hauling service such as Heavy Haulers, including the distance required, whether or not the aircraft is going overseas, and the flight worthiness of the plane itself. Some aircraft may be less expensive to ship to their destination than to fly themselves, even if the craft itself is capable of covering the distance safely. We are the industry-leading airplane shipping company.

Heavy Haulers ships aircraft of all kinds, from helicopters to small biplanes to larger jets. We also ship fuselages, which is the body of an airplane, the wings, and other airplane parts. Airplanes always need to be broken down, separating the fuselage and wings for a safe transport.These services are available across North America and port-to-port worldwide. With many years of heavy equipment and break bulk transport experience, Heavy Haulers is the best choice to ship your aircraft or airplane. Call now for a free shipping estimate! (800) 908-6206

The Main Parts Hauled When Airplane Shipping

Airplanes are made up of five main parts. They include:

  • Fuselage Transport
    Also known as the body of an airplane, a fuselage is the hollow tube that holds passengers and/or cargo.

  • Wings Shipping
    An obvious part of an aircraft, the wings are essential to the flight of an airplane. These are often detached for transport.

  • Empennage Hauling
    Or the tail of an airplane. The two main components are the elevator, which helps with up and down movement, along with the rudder, which steers from left to right. Both components help with the overall stability of an aircraft.

  • Power Plant Transport
    This is the combination of the engine and propeller. These two main components work together for power and thrust.

  • Landing Gear Shipping
    It includes the wheels, along with shock absorbers, for takeoff and landing of an airplane.

Whether you need to ship an entire airplane or the individual parts, Heavy Haulers is equipped to handle the transport. We work with experienced drivers, obtain the necessary permits for oversize loads, and meticulously plan your route. Call for a free shipping estimate! (800) 908-6206

Learn How Heavy Haulers Transports Airplanes

Moving an airplane is a task that requires expertise and careful attention to detail. Airplanes are created to have an aerodynamic lift, which makes shipping them overland a challenge. Depending on the size of your aircraft, it may be partially disassembled and loaded on one or more flatbed trailers. The fuel will be drained for safety and all parts carefully cabled down. The oversized loads may be flagged for safety, and an escort convoy may be necessary.

Another option is to further disassemble your aircraft and have it shipped in crates. The crates should travel attached to a normal semi-truck rig. This method requires professional aircraft engineers, which some clients may not have. Both of these types of aircraft shipments are available through Heavy Haulers, moving across North America.

For overseas aircraft transport, Heavy Haulers provides port-to-port shipment. Your aircraft will arrive at one of our overseas ports, be loaded onto a cargo ship, and then sail to the destination port. Once there, your designated representative will be able to pick your shipment up form the cargo master. An aircraft that travels in a cargo ship is typically a "breakbulk" cargo, which refers to loads that are oversized or unusually shaped, and not able to be transported in regular shipping containers. These shipments cost more than shipping standard goods, as the item(s) take up more room in the cargo ship's hold and may displace other goods.

How To Ship an Airplane with Heavy Haulers

At Heavy Haulers we have over a decade of experience transporting everything from a small aircraft to an oversize airplane. Our experience has given us the expertise required to haul any size aircraft with ease. We understand that planes need to be dismantled, and the parts shipped on their own. Transporting a plane whole on a tractor trailer is extremely dangerous and considered a hazard. That’s why it’s dismantled into parts for a safer journey. Heavy Haulers is the industry-leading airplane shipping company. We provide local and long distance hauling, making sure to properly breakdown the airplane for transport.

The separately shipped parts of an aircraft include:

  • ● Fuselage

  • ● Wings

  • ● Pylons

  • ● Horizontal Stabilizers

Transport of Fuselage and Airplane Sections

All airplanes transported by truck need to be shipped out in sections. This is to ensure the safety of the drivers and to minimize the dangers of hauling an aircraft. The wings, pylons, horizontal stabilizers, and the fuselage usually need to be hauled separately. This provides a more secure transport experience.

Shipping a fuselage entails obtaining permits, as it is almost always over dimensional in height and weight. In some cases, the airplane transport route will need to be modified in order to avoid any low bridges or narrow roads. A fuselage is a very expensive and delicate piece of an aircraft, so it will need to be loaded and strapped down with the utmost care.

At Heavy Haulers we have the experience, the insurance, and knowledge necessary to ensure a safe and smooth journey from one state to another.
