MINOR AIRCRAFT DAMAGE
A JOB FOR OUR DOLLIES!

A damaged airplane blocking a runway or the airport apron can have various causes, ranging, for example, from tire failure to a broken axle, a damaged rim or a locked brake.

Especially at highly frequency airports or airports with only one runway, a swift and efficient reaction to this situation is essential in order to prevent runway closure. Our dollies ensure that operations are able to resume as quickly as possible, making them a musthave for airports around the world.

FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS
MODULAR PLATFORM

The individual systems can be expanded as required to cover even larger claims.

Every year, more and more people travel by air. This means a constant increase in air traffic volume, leading to a higher frequency of take-offs and landings that airports have to cope with.

In this situation, a damaged airplane blocking a runway not only leads to delays for passengers, but can also result in quickly accumulating extra expenses for all involved.

Emergency – and next?
BEST INSURANCE

In an airport emergency, there is no room for mistakes.

This is where the Aircraft Recovery and Transport System (ARTS) comes into play. In close collaboration with international recovery specialists Goldhofer has developed ARTS as a global standard.

THE CASE:

  • Small passenger airport with a single runway.
  • A 330/70 t, right tire bursted during the landing
  • The plane blocked the only runway for 5 h since there was no suitable equipment
