Air and Air/Surface (Platform) Cargo Pallets
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes three classes of pallets: a. Type A, Air only Pallet b. Type B, Platform Pallet (Air/Surface Intermodal) c. Type C, Adapter Pallet Pallets will have nominal dimension of: a. Size F pallet (10 ft) (NAS 3610-2F1P) - 2.44 m x 2.99 m (96 in x 117.75 in) b. Size R pallet (16 ft) (NAS 3610-2R1P) - 2.44 m x 4.98 m (96 in x 196 in) c. Size G pallet (20 ft) (NAS 3610-2G1P) - 2.44 m x 6.06 m (96 in x 238.5 in) d. Size H pallet (30 ft) (NAS 3610-2H1P) - 2.44 m x 9.12 m (96 in x 359.25 in) e. Size J pallet (40 ft) (NAS 3610-2J1P) - 2.44 m x 12.19 m (96 in x 480 in) Type A, Air only pallets, will normally be on aircraft equivalent roller conveying systems and/or on similarly equipped ancillary ground handling devices. Type B, Platform pallets, are suitable for air/surface handling and transport systems. Supplementary requirements for Type B version are found in Section 4.
