The aircraft that have been outfitted at the training center are the EC120, EC130 and H145. The ‘Safety First’ ergonomic stands allow technicians safe access to all areas of the aircraft while creating a ‘highly and efficient ergonomic environment’, said SAFE.
The stands are designed so that the instructor can train students on how to work efficiently when performing maintenance on the aircraft components. In return, the students can focus in more detail on the skill sets offered by the Airbus training instruction.
Improving safety for students and instructors
SAFE Structure Designs equipped the Airbus stands with features such as an anti-fatigue mat and tool. The stands contour to the aircraft fuselage with sliders leaving zero gaps. They are light weight and adjustable in height, which allows them to be used on various aircraft.
Johnny Buscema, SAFE President and CEO, said: “During training, maintenance technicians must access all areas of the aircraft for extended periods of time. Our custom design provides the instructor and the student with a stand that improves safety which allows the student to concentrate on the training.”
Earlier this year, SAFE announced it will be offering a complete product line of economical Compressed Air Foam fire suppression equipment for helicopter operations support and various other applications.
