Custom Flight Cables

DOD certified custom cable assemblies can be fabricated and certified to specification MIL-DTL-6117, or certified to your special specifications. McFarlane custom cables with standard fittings are pre-stretched and proof loaded in accordance with MIL-DTL-5688. Cables using nonstandard fittings are proof loaded and pre-stretched when possible, but cannot be certified to the MIL-DTL-5688 or MIL-DTL-6117 standards.

Traceability of all materials and tests are maintained for our custom cables. Our extensive stock of cable and fittings allows us to provide one to three day service for most orders.

  • Pre-stretched and proof loaded to MIL-DTL-5688
  • Manufactured using the same materials and attention to quality as our FAA-PMA cables  
  • McFarlane is a D.O.D. QML-6117 approved cable supplier

Custom cable design forms are available below, or you can send us your old cable with a signed statement requesting us to duplicate the cable. Custom assemblies are manufactured using the same materials and attention to quality as our FAA-PMA products, however custom cables are not FAA-PMA approved.
