Flight Kit

We’ve designed a flight kit that has everything you need to get your dog and crate flying with most major airlines.  Our crates can come with the flight kit attached when you order or if you already have a kennel, you will be able to easily install the flight kit yourself as the kennel is already configured to fit the kit.

  • Flight Rails
  • Handles
  • Custom Designed Water Bowl
  • Materials

    Made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) sheeting. HDPE is a FDA approved sanitary surface, and is UV stable. We use a full 1/4″ thick HDPE, which is 6 times thicker than the average injection molded kennels/crates.

    The Hinges

    We developed our hinges because we wanted to eliminate the number of parts to the kennel and integrate the hinge into one piece. The weakest point of a hinge is how the hinge is fastened to the door. On our kennels we integrate the hinge into the door to add strength. We use the stainless steel pin, which runs the entire length of the door that helps eliminate flex on the hinge which also helps functionality and durability. A typical kennel door has two points of contact between door and doorframe where as our kennel has eight points of contact. When speaking with dog owners about their kennel experiences one of the biggest complaints were standard kennel doors this is another reason why we developed our hinge.
