What is a flight case?

A flight case is a specialised container designed to protect fragile equipment, hardware, instruments, accessories, prototypes, or similar items that need protection in transit. They achieve this because they are made from hardwearing materials, which makes them highly durable and extremely robust –  unlike standard luggage cases. 

The military, police, medical, entertainment, and communications industries all benefit from our full range of protection flight cases.

So, why should you opt for one of our flight cases?

Comprehensive protection

Our offering includes a range of flight cases designed to keep even the most breakable items and technology in the hold protected from impacts and theft. 

Regardless of which model you select, all our protective cases are made from tough and impact-resistant materials that are tried and tested to keep your goods safe and secure across both short and long distances.

Plus, with the addition of security features, such as engraved nameplates, thieves are much less likely to target your flight case at baggage carousels – helping reduce theft during travel.


Quality craftsmanship

At Hofbauer, we’re able to boast some of the best lightweight flight cases and heavy-duty containers on the market thanks to our expert manufacturing. 

Every product we supply is made with complete durability in mind, from reinforced castor wheels to customised foam interiors, we take pride in only shipping the most robust cases.

Bespoke flight cases

We manufacture custom flight cases to ensure our clients are well-equipped to carry even the most unique items. Most of the designs from our huge range are customisable, from their size and colour to wheel and handle options.

The customisation options don’t stop there – for a small added fee, we can add bespoke foam inserts to your order for extra protection.

Custom foam inserts are the exact product needed to keep fragile items such as musical instruments, electronics and delicate tools cushioned and secure during transport.

To create your foam inserts or a bespoke flight case, we’ll request information such as the weight and the exact product dimensions of the items you need to store. Then we can design and craft your case and cut the custom foam to ensure a snug fit. 

If you are unsure at the point of order, many clients choose to send product images/diagrams as it’s more convenient for them and reduces the likelihood of measuring mistakes.

Choose from a complete range of flight cases

Our extensive range of flight cases has a model to suit every purpose – you can select from 

various designs made from plastic and aluminium that all offer impressive benefits.


The perfect all-rounder, Thermodyne cases and containers are the ideal flight case for keeping an array of goods safe in the air, on the water, or on the open road. Plus with over 400 sizes to choose from, there’s a case for every need!

Manufactured from High-Density Polyethene (HDPE), this model is incredibly sturdy as it doesn’t have seams or fitted metal corners that can burr and scratch or split if dropped, making it suitable for a range of applications. Also, as Thermodyne cases and containers are moulded from HDPE, they’re considerably lighter than other models, offering a great strength-to-weight ratio. 

Another fantastic benefit is that it offers dust and moisture protection thanks to its O-ring seal, meaning your goods are secure even in rainy climates – this makes it the perfect solution for shielding items during transportation and storage.

In addition to the normal high level of environmental protection & strength of Thermodyne cases & containers, if required they can be manufactured to ingress protection (IP) standards 1P54 & IP67 also to ATA Cat 300 (Category I) certified for the aviation industry.

Thermodyne cases also feature moulded-in locators for easy logistics and stacking during storage, making them a solid choice for frequent travellers.

With Thermodyne cases, you won’t be short of customisation choices either, helping to make your cases more identifiable on luggage carousels. Select between nine colours such as blue, red or yellow, plus more!
