WIP
ARP1328D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is intended to recommend: a. uniform criteria for determination of wind loads that aircraft ground support equipment can encounter and yet allow personnel to work safely, b. uniform systems for maintaining stability (i.e., stabilizers, outriggers, spring lockout devices), c. standardization of specific types of interlock systems and actuation systems, d. a standard formula with its associated design criteria for calculating the steady-state wind stability (i.e., tip point) for aircraft ground support equipment, e. a standard method for testing these systems.

Nose Gear Towbarless Tow Vehicle Basic Test Requirements

2017-12-18
CURRENT
ARP5283B
The purpose of this specification is to provide airplane operators and tow vehicle manufacturers with: a General design and operating requirements pertinent to test and evaluation of towbarless tow vehicles. Specific design requirements are provided in ARP4852 and ARP4853. b Test and evaluation requirements. The results of these test evaluations will determine if the loads induced by the tow vehicle will exceed the design loads of the nose gear, or are within the aircraft manufacturer’s limits so that they do not affect the certified safe limit of the nose gear. The results of these test evaluations will also determine if a stability problem may occur during pushback and/or maintenance towing operations with the tested airplane/tow vehicle combination. This document specifies general test requirements and a test evaluation procedure for towbarless tow vehicles (TLTV) intended for pushback and maintenance towing only.

CURRENT
ARP1915E
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) specifies dimensional and physical requirements of tow bar connections to tractor and aircraft (see Figure 1). It is applicable to all types of commercial transport category aircraft tow bar. The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to standardize tow bar attachments to airplane and tractor according to the mass category of the towed aircraft, so that one tow bar head with different shear levels can be used for all aircraft that are within the same mass category and are manufactured in compliance with AS1614 or ISO 8267.

Charger for Battery Powered Ground Support Equipment

2015-07-13
CURRENT
ARP1816D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes three general types of Ground Support Equipment (GSE) battery chargers. The battery charger typically requiring up to 8 hours to recharge a 100% discharged battery, hereafter called “Conventional Charger.” A charger, hereafter called “Opportunity Charger,” which has the ability to charge at a slightly faster rate than a conventional charger. A charger, hereafter called “Fast Charger,” which has the ability to charge at a much faster rate than a conventional charger. Recommendations that apply to all types will refer generically to “charger.”

Design Factors - Handicapped Passenger Boarding Devices

2014-03-11
CURRENT
AIR4652A
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) covers handicapped passenger boarding devices used airside to transfer handicapped passengers between the terminal building and the aircraft. It provides an elevating platform to facilitate access to the aircraft; it does not cover devices for in-terminal or streetside transfers, wheelchairs for on-board aircraft or in-terminal usage, or aircraft boarding bridges. However, it should be recognized that for many handicapped passengers, a boarding chair is necessary for the lifting operation and movement to the passenger's seat inside the aircraft cabin. Such wheelchairs are widely used in larger aircraft, and the Federal Aviation Agency has developed a performance specification for a boarding chair for commuter aircraft.

Cushion Tow Hitches Test

2012-12-05
CURRENT
AIR1353C
The main purpose of this test was to determine the application advantages of cushion tow hitches in comparison to the commonly used rigid tow hitch type fitted on heavy aircraft towing tractors. As diverse opinions emerged about its suitability since the introduction on the market of this new tow hitch type, it was intended to physically measure and evaluate the damping capability of this cushioned tow link when applied in practice.

ARP4084A
The purpose of this SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is to standardize locations of aircraft ground service connections to accommodate the trend toward fixed systems, which use the passenger loading bridge as a vehicle for a source of utilities. It must be recognized that, in standardizing the locations of the aircraft service connections, they must continue to be served efficiently in those instances where mobile ground support equipment is used. There is an ever increasing number of fixed installations for aircraft servicing. The objectives to be met by standardizing the locations of the aircraft service connections are the following:
