This project required a jet blast deflector suitable for running fighter aircraft at full afterburner. BDI’s GS series is the worldwide standard for unabated power check pads and can withstand the extreme temperatures and velocities of this application. Virtually all USAF bases, and many NATO bases, are equipped with GS-series jet blast deflectors by BDI.
