Airlines

For commercial airline operators, whether they are passenger carriers or freight lines, an efficient maintenance operation is crucial to business success. Any delay in scheduled service can have serious financial consequences. But it is even more important to be one hundred per cent certain that everything about each aircraft is in perfect mechanical condition. 

There can be no compromise on safety before a plane leaves the hanger and returns to service. Our aerial work platforms provide safe and efficient access to all parts of the plane, from nose to tail and wingtip to wingtip, to facilitate efficient inspections and maintenance on all aircraft ranging from small commuter planes to the largest jumbo jets flying today. Indeed, we’ve designed a number of tailor- made, specialised platforms for the airline industry. And since most aircraft maintenance takes place inside, we offer low-noise, non-polluting electric alternatives to standard diesel power AWPs. 

Specialised modifications

A few examples of our innovative solutions:

26-metre and 28-metre electric booms to inspect and maintain the tailwings quickly, safely, and without noise or pollution;
A battery change system that allows 24/7 operation of electric scissorlifts, so there’s no downtime required while batteries are charged;
On many of our machines, we install rubber bumpers and warningsensors around the baskets to provide an extra margin of safety and further reduce the risk of damage to the aircraft.
