This is strictly for the ground station. The wind resistance of this on an airplane would be ridiculous. Maybe what you could do for your plane is make something that could cover it up for transport (anchored with some light magnets or something) and remove it for flight. As is the drag of these antennas isn't too bad at the speeds most of us are going.

Yeah the goal of this was to protect the antenna while it is not in use, so it doesn't get snagged by clothing, wires and such while transporting and setting up/tearing down the ground station.
