Arrived on time and good conditions
Received my matching (colour band) set of four 1280HDs and they are installed. Obvious to see they are an improvement by checking the tire angle to ground.
Cords rec and now installed, no problems
Here is an example: for part # 1080HD, the 10 is 10/16 of the cross section, and the 80 is 8" ID in a perfect circle.
Per the manufacturer, no it does not meet this. They have not heard of this requirement or been asked this question previously. They are not sure that it relates to aviation.
These shock chords are made of natural rubber that is chemically blended with the manufactures reciepe. These are not fuel and oil resistant as this will break down the ring if you spill any on it.

Per the supplier: it is "Load at distance." However, they said in an aircraft application they will likely not reach that kinda of load.
