Just like other items on the aircraft, pneumatic boots require scheduled maintenance. Boot life is measured by the amount of flight hours or cycles used. UV rays or ozone exposure without proper treatment will deteriorate the neoprene rubber and can lead to early boot repairs/replacement. Regular and proper boot treatment will ensure boot performance and longevity.
