Best Ground Handling Equipment Required for Aircraft Usage?:

Best Ground Handling Equipment Required for Aircraft Usage? When an airplane is about to land, the entire fleet of Ground Support Equipment and operators await its arrival. Once the plane drives up to the designated gate at the airport, Ground Handlers begin their work. An immediate service of the aircraft starts and they promptly prepare it for its next departure . There is much essential ground handling equipment that is used at the aviation organizations to carry out various operations. These equipment are used for various tasks including baggage handling, refueling, and powering the plane while it is landed. In this article, we will explore some of the most common ground handling equipment that you should know about: Visit us :- https://aeromaxgse.com/

GSE for Mobility Ground handlers use towbars and pushback tractors to move the plane away from the gate and towards the runway. This heavy-duty equipment can tow up to 100,000lbs of weight. It can easily push the largest planes towards the runway without any problems. Aircraft tractors can also tow the aircraft towards a hanger for maintenance, repairs or storage. Many countries like India and Brazil it is mandatory for operators to have a towbar onboard before they confirm the parking of any aircraft.

Ground Power Units Ground Power Units are one of the most crucial equipments available at any airport. All kinds of aircraft rely on the GPUs for uninterrupted functions. The GPUs provide electricity to any aircraft parked on the ground to avoid wastage of expensive Jet Fuel, batteries, and auxiliary power unit (APUs). GPUs supply 400Hz AC or 28.5V DC power to the plane, and can assist with aircraft engine start once its ready for takeoff . GPU becomes essential at airports that restrict the use of APUs due to regulations at the destined location. On the other hand, there are some airports that allow aircraft to use APUs for a few minutes before the take-off of the plane, for instance, Nice (LFMN).

Baggage and Cargos Much different equipment take part in the baggage and cargo management of planes. Baggage carts are used to store passenger baggage while a baggage tractor transports the baggage carts from the plane towards the airport and vice versa. Cargo dollies and cargo loaders similarly load and unload large amounts of cargo from the plane, while belt loaders are used to load the individual packages of cargo or baggage onto the plane.

Slide7:

De- Icer Many GSE equipment plays an important role in the safety of the plane, especially in the winter. De- icer trucks are vital in preparing planes for takeoff in the winter. They spray the plane with jets of hot, specially formulated de-icing fluid to get rid of any ice buildups and ensure the plane is safe to fly.

Slide8:

Climate control You might have noticed that no matter what the weather is, inside the plane it always feels comfortable. Whether it is a very hot summer day or a cold winter day, the cabin is always at comfortable room temperature. It happens due to specialized GSE such as air conditioning and heating carts. These heating/conditioning carts pump large amounts of hot or cold air into the plane to keep the passengers comfortable.
