Access platforms. Aircraft maintenance parts operating instructions

The aircraft maintenance, technical operations and continuing airworthiness sectors are vital parts of the global aviation industry.  Aircraft maintenance might include such task as ensuring compliance with Airworthiness Directives or Service Bulletins. The aircraft maintenance has regulations to ensure safe and correct functioning during flight. National regulations are coordinated under international standards, maintained by bodies such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The aircraft maintenance tasks, personnel and inspections are all highly regulated and staff must have licenses to be entitled to perform the tasks.

The main tasks of an effective aircraft maintenance services are to ensure safety, reliability, to repair if needed. Most airlines define aircraft maintenance tasks as: lubrication or servicing, operational or visual check, inspection or function check, restoration and discard where aircraft tool shows functional degradation.

Aircraft maintenance requirements differ for various types of aircrafts but experience shows that most aircraft need some type of preventive aircraft maintenance every 25 hours or less of flying time. Minor aircraft maintenance is needed at least every 100 hours. This can be influenced by the kind of operation, climatic conditions, storage facilities, age and construction of the aircraft.

First of all care should be taken to ensure that all locking bolts are fitted with serviceable securing pins and that the former are all attached via their respective chains to the cradle and transporter stands FB70010-2V250, FB70010-2V250ASH. Care should be taken when rising and lowering each castor set, that the transporter stand is adequately supported and that there are no obstructions to the lift or lowering operation. It is advisable that two operators are present when a castor change takes place.

All castors on the transporter stand should be checked for freedom of movement in terms of both rotation and turning facility. The wheel castors can be rotated by using a special handle and locked in one of four positions by means of an indexing spigot. This allows the whole wheel assembly to turn. (The side plates have two short box sections welded to them to facilitate sufficient leverage).

The special handles are also used for raising and lowering the castors to the Secondary locking position, to allow the transporter stand to sit directly on the ground.

During towing, the forward castors must be in the directional unlocked position, by raising the indexing spigot and the trailing castors must be in the directional locked position. When the stand is being manually manoeuvred in the hanger or for engine changes, all four castors can be in the directional unlocked position.

The workshop or aircraft maintenance area should possess a flat, clean, hardwearing surface. Ground clearance is 100 mm, which should be adequate for normal use.

Operation of the hand-pumps to raise or lower the wheels will give ground clearance of 100mm or 250mm depending on which locking pin position is selected. The 100mm clearance is for general use, whilst the higher clearance is used on inclines or ramps only. By retraction of the cylinder and no locking pin inserted, the transporter stand will sit directly on the ground for shipping and storage purposes.
