Description / Abstract:


This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) is intended to recommend

uniform criteria for determination of wind loads that aircraft ground support equipment can encounter and yet allow personnel to work safely

uniform systems for maintaining stability (i.e., stabilizers, outriggers, spring lockout devices)

standardization of specific types of interlock systems and actuation systems

a standard formula with its associated design criteria for calculating the steady-state wind stability (i.e., tip point) for aircraft ground support equipment

a standard method for testing these systems

Field of Application

This document is intended to be applicable to mobile self-propelled or not self-propelled Ground Support Equipment (GSE) to be used for directly servicing transport aircraft

It is not intended to apply to the following equipment

ladders, stands, and scaffoldings not used as GSE to directly service an aircraft

airport passenger boarding bridges

any fixed facility or part thereof

fire fighting equipment
