  • Q what is a flight case

    We know that the advent of the flight case is because its function is an indispensable part of the pursuit of perfection in air transportation. It is because of these kinds of requirements that the flight case has been released. The flight case can maintain many special tools, and many special tools can be maintained very reliably, no matter what the objects are. Whether it's medium, high-end, or whatever, this special tool is all capable.
    We must especially grasp what items are inseparable from the flight case. For example, some instrumental equipment, special tools like speakers, are inseparable from the flight case. Like many orchestras, because they need concert information, they often have to be installed on airplanes. This kind of traditional musical instrument needs the maintenance of the flight case in particular, and there should be no carelessness. It can be said that if there are special tools for the main purpose, it is better to put them in a flight case to ensure their safety. Especially in diagnosis and treatment laboratory equipment, stage lighting equipment and machinery, optical machinery and equipment, visual system software and multimedia systems, and military transportation and packaging, these are all new technology machinery and equipment and are inseparable from flight cases.
