WHAT EQUIPMENT NEEDS TO BE INSPECTED DURING GSE MAINTENANCE SERVICE
Ground support equipment (GSE) plays an integral role in the aviation industry. GSE is used for routine and unscheduled maintenance services and is critical to ensure an aircraft is functioning properly. During GSE maintenance services, a variety of equipment is inspected and repaired in order to assure aircraft operation is running smoothly. If GSE equipment is not properly serviced and maintained, there could be some costly and even tragic consequences. To avoid the chances of these consequences happening, basic procedures and thorough inspections should be done to each piece of equipment during GSE maintenance services. In this guide, you will find a series of questions that should be asked during GSE maintenance and before each use of tow bars, jacks, engine slings, tail stands and work stands.
