Quick connect fittings

Hi Group

I am looking for any supplyer of fuel quick connect fittings
with check valve included (aeronautical use).
In example, those quick connect are used in motorgliders (Stemme, Pipistrel composite) doing easier the wing disassembly.
Any help will be very welcome.


RE: Quick connect fittings


Is this for a type certified aircraft, or an experimental aircraft. Some of the aircraft you mention, certified under JAR 22, use plastic connectors, which I do not think very highly of.
For experimental use, look at the coaxial fuel connectors used on the older Honda outboard motors. Part number 18-80401 female and 18-80400 male these are metal.
You can also look at the Colder companies MCD line of fittings MCD4202 or MCD 1004.
Or if you have to have plastic, look at Parker Hannifin  PPM and PPL series valved couplers
