Aircraft Maintenance Equipment in Defense

An Impressive Client Base

In defense, keeping a strict maintenance schedule is critical for keeping aircraft combat-ready; what happens on the ground affects performance in the sky. But even with the strictest standards and tightest of turnaround times, safety for personnel on the ground is as important as it is for those flying sorties and the people they protect. Trace back the process, and injuries sustained in the hangar will have an upwards-domino effect on productivity and the ability to accurately service an aircraft. That’s when accidents happen. With added situational stresses that military aircraft experience, you can add another helping of danger.

This concern needs solving by the use of aircraft maintenance equipment that helps technicians gain close access working areas of the airplane or rotary aircraft, as well as preventative features that protect them from falls from height.

For defense clients all around the world, the answer is with SafeSmart Aviation, the leaders in safe and compliant height access that increases not only safety but also productivity.
