With spinning wheels, there is a chance for errors in delivery and damage to the volleyballs. Visit our Air vs Wheels page for further comparison.

How does the aircat compare to other training machines?

AirCAT uses an incredibly accurate air-driven launching system (Consistent Air TechnologyTM) to deliver volleyballs to a precise location, time-after-time. This increases player proficiency through perfect repetition. Other training machines employ spinning wheels. These types of machines cause ball wear, whereas with the AirCAT, there is no ball wear. Such machines cannot produce the consistency, precision or versatility of the AirCAT. The AirCAT is battery-operated and allows operation via automatic timer or with a wireless remote. It is the only “complete” training machine for all your players.

AirCAT high repetition drill machine is perfect for team training and individual training; and it can be adapted for virtually any drill or game-like training scenario.

  • Individual players can practice on their own without the need for anybody to toss balls.
  • AirCAT can launch 1,800 balls per hour making it effective for in-season and off-season workouts.

Easily operate the AirCAT with a wireless remote control; allowing players to get in more practice time. In addition, with no spinning wheels, coaches do not have to worry about player safety while using the machine.

If service is needed, How is repair or service handled?

The AirCAT is equipped with an electronic diagnostic menu for identifying issues. If you have a question related to the performance or a message on the diagnostic menu, please do not hesitate to call us at 888.887.7453 or send us an email at info@airborneathletics.com. We are in the office Mon – Fri 7am – 4pm CST. Maintenance tips are available for reference in the AirCAT Manual.

What maintenance tips do you recommend for when the aircat is not in use?

If you plan to store the AirCAT for a period that is over 24 hours, the AirCAT system needs to be depressurized. Trapped air holds moisture and moisture can affect internal components. To depressurize the system, takes only a few minutes and is done with a push of a button. Also, be sure to plug in the battery box system 24-36 hours before intended use to ensure full power. Plus, during the off-season, plug in the system once a month for an overnight charge to get the maximum life out of your battery.
