Abstract : This document describes a rain erosion resistant protective covering for aircraft having pointed or conical radomes and method of forming the protective covering. The protective covering is a layered material of polyurethane, contact adhesive, and polyethylene which is formed into the desired shape by precutting the material to the shape of the radome, placing the material in a mold, heating the material, and drawing a vacuum between the mold and material to draw the material into the shape of the mold, thus producing a cover having the shape of the mold.
