Committee AGE-2 reports to the Aerospace General Projects Division. The main, or governing committee, AGE-2, is composed of the most experienced members, mainly from the airlines, airframe manufacturers, and support equipment manufacturers, to provide leadership and guidance for the activity.
The Steering Committee is composed of the two experienced members from each subcommittee and the Chairman of Committee AGE-2, Subcommittee AGE-2A, and Subcommittee AGE-2C, to provide guidance and direction for committee and subcommittee activities.
AGE-2A is an Air Cargo Handling subcommittee that develops basic criteria and practices for air cargo and baggage loading systems and equipment, pallets, containers, environment in the aircraft, handling on the ramp, and interfacing with the aircraft and the terminal.
AGE-2C is a Vehicle Maintenance and Aircraft Servicing subcommittee that develops basic criteria and practices for aerospace ground support equipment mainly for commercial airlines and airports.
The effort of both subcommittees result in development, preparation and eventual Aerospace Council approval of documents falling into one of the following classifications:
AIRs - Aerospace Information Report
ARPs - Aerospace Recommended Practices
ASs - Aerospace Standards
Membership to implement the work is drawn with reasonable balance from airlines, airframe manufacturers, support equipment manufacturers, and others with special aircraft related expertise. Members serve based on their knowledge, expertise, and experience and not as agents or representatives of any organization.
