Aircraft Transportation Seminar

Course Overview


Transporting an aircraft unable to move by itself is a major operation that every aircraft recovery crew must know how to perform. This seminar will cover all aspects of such a job and allow you to confront an aircraft recovery operation with the knowledge and skills necessary to complete it.

In this seminar, we will focus on the various techniques involved in aircraft transportation. We will illustrate the different ways aircraft may be moved—whether by the use of a dolly system, single wing and fuselage trailers, or by a special aircraft recovery transport system.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will have gained a practical understanding that can then be applied to all aircraft recovery operations, guaranteeing a safe and expedient aircraft recovery operation.
