AIRCRAFT DAMAGE CAUSED BY GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT

1980-03-01
HISTORICAL
AIR1589
This AIR examines only those incidents which were caused by ground support equipment used for aircraft handling and servicing and for line maintenance. It does not include damage that occurred during heavy maintenance or overhaul activity, taxi incidents or accidents where an aircraft under tow collided with a piece of GSE.

EXHAUST EMISSION LIMITS FOR DIESEL ENGINES USED IN AIRCRAFT GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT AT AIRPORT ENVIRONMENTS

2002-12-16
CURRENT
AIR1312
This Aerospace Information Report (AIR) outlines the conditions which diesel engines should meet when installed and used as prime movers for aircraft ground support equipment at commercial airports. All aircraft ground support equipment with a heavy duty diesel engine as defined on page 24293 of the November 15, 1972 Federal Register and used as a prime mover for the vehicle or equipment should meet all requirements as outlined herein. Typical equipment includes fuel trucks, commissary trucks, baggage tractors, ground power units, air start units, etc.

CUSHION TOW HITCHES TEST

1992-08-18
HISTORICAL
AIR1353A
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.

Four Wheel Drive Aircraft Tow Tractors - Factors for Design Consideration

1990-03-01
CURRENT
AIR1363A
This Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is presented in two parts. The first part is simply a summarization of design factors that must be considered in establishing vehicle specifications and design characteristics. The second part refers particularly to the performance characteristics of an aircraft tow tractor. Some definitions, formulas, data, and an example are provided mainly for assisting the specifying engineers of potential buyers and users of aircraft tow tractors in the evaluation and comparison of their requirements with the performance capabilities of the various tow tractors offered by the tow tractor manufacturers. Although the design engineers could also use the formulas and data in their calculations of the performance specifications of aircraft tow tractors, this AIR is not intended to provide the methods and all data necessary for detailed calculations and design of an aircraft tow tractor.

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.
