I've looked every where and asked quite a few people without any luck so far.
I haven't the connections these days for such parts, but I suspect that there may be a few hidden away gathering dust somewhere. Maybe these posts could bring one out into the daylight for you

Thanks for your time - that is what I was hoping for. There must be plenty hiding somewhere around the World.

Thanks ersa, evil7 and ericferret for your recent replies and help - it's very kind of you.

Heliwest have none spare, Manfred doesn't know of any and I'll try PAS/SAS next week.

Thanks again.

You might want to try Heliservice International GmbH in Germany as well.
Heliservice - Your reliable partner in the air
Operating their own BO105 plus one or the other BO 105 belonging to Claus Wasserthal (I know we had those covers when I was still flying for him) they should have some spare parts.

I have not been there for many years, but the following company in Indonesia used to operate a fleet of BO 105's.

Thanks Old Farang, I've sent them an email.

Thanks to everyone - it looks like I've tracked down the cover. I can't believe such a simple thing could be so hard to find!

Looking at their webpage I would make sure that they don‘t sell any military parts.��

Thanks for the suggestion. Peter has been extremely helpful to me throughout the whole buying the 105 process. Unfortunately he doesn't stock the cover.

I've now sourced a cover and have it ordered so the issue has been resolved.

Thanks to everyone for your helpful suggestions - I really appreciate it.
