Aircraft cable is made of special strength wires originally for aircraft controls and miscellaneous uses in the aircraft industry. While commercial grade aircraft cable cannot be used for aircraft controls, aircraft cable is used in many general-purpose applications such as slings, winch lines, tow cables, hoisting, and more.

Aircraft cable is available now from Armstrong-Alar Chain corporation in stainless steel aircraft cable and galvanized aircraft cable. Stainless steel aircraft cable is well known for being the strongest and the most reliable aircraft cable available. Galvanized aircraft cable is a low cost alternative to stainless steel aircraft cable because it is not resistant to as much weather and temperature conditions as stainless steel. In average climates and conditions, galvanized aircraft cable performs very well. Where as stainless steel aircraft cable performs well no matter where you use it.
Stainless steel aircraft cable is corrosion resisten steel and is considered the highest quality aircraft cable you can by. There are different types of stainless steel aircraft cable you can buy with higher rated corrosion resistance and tensile strength. Stainless steel aircraft cable does test at about the same pulling strength as galvanized aircraft cable, stainless steel lasts much longer under corrosive conditions like salt water, extreme cold, and extreme heat.
There are two types of stainless steel aircraft cable available, 316 stainless steel aircraft cable and 302/304 stainless steel aircraft cable. The 316 stainless steel industrial aircraft cable has a higher corrosion resistance rating, however the 302/304 stainless steel aircraft cable holds a higher strength rating.
