The term “aircraft cable” is a generic term used to denote wire ropes from sizes roughly .047” to .375” and constructions 7x7 and 7x19. Aircraft cable is generally offered in galvanized and stainless steels, and is a very versatile tool. It's the wire rope style most often used in diverse applications including dog runs and fitness equipment, sailboat rigging and bicycle locks. Aircraft cable is such a ubiquitous item in our modern world that it may surprise some of our readers to know that it is also used in actual aircraft!
The name aircraft cable is derived from the fact that this style of wire rope is and has historically been used for aircraft flight controls. The cables that you would find in your dog run or key chain aren’t of the same quality as those used for flight controls, but the basic elements are similar. The stranding of wires into cables is a proven method of providing strength and flexibility, which makes aircraft cable a fit for use in modern airplanes.
