How to Choose the Right Aircraft Maintenance Platform

How to Choose the Righ Aircraft Maintenance Platform

Jump to:

An aircraft maintenance platform is an essential tool for your maintenance, repair and overhaul, or MRO, routine. Reliability and safety in the air come from thorough checks on the ground. And when you equip your mechanics with the right aircraft ground support equipment, they’ll be able to work more thoroughly, safely and efficiently.

Here at JETechnology Solutions, we’re committed to helping our customers find the perfect maintenance platforms for their unique MRO situation. Our production process revolves around you, and we have over 75 years of combined design experience.

How Does an Aircraft Maintenance Stand Improve Your MRO Routine?

The professionals use aviation work platforms because they increase the safety, reliability and efficiency of your operations. Here's how:

1. Safety

Aircraft maintenance work stands are first and foremost designed to give your technicians safe access while they work. When you protect your crew with the proper equipment, you can rest easy knowing their work environment is safe. Choosing the right work stand for your MRO routine should always begin with meeting safety requirements. No matter the job — from engine access to aircraft cleaning — there’s a safe solution.

You also must have the proper ground support equipment to satisfy the requirements for safe working conditions set by the Air Force Occupational and Environmental Safety, Fire Protection, and Health (AFOSH) standards as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Our stands are built to meet and exceed these safety standards, and we provide all necessary documentation for your safety inspections.

The most important asset to any aviation company is its human personnel, and that’s why we take safety seriously.

At JETechnology Solutions, we design all of our access platforms to the highest safety standards because we know what’s at stake — it's not just your team on the ground. It's also the in-flight safety that only comes from proper aircraft maintenance. With about 5,000 aircraft flying in the United States at any given time, thorough upkeep has never been more critical.

Upkeep is Critical

We help almost every aviation industry – from the U.S. military to the airlines. We engineer our products with the belief that the well-being of our clients and their passengers depends on it.

2. Reliability

You need to be able to depend on your ground support equipment (GSE) — it’s there to help you fix maintenance issues, not create them. When you use high-quality aircraft stands, you can count on their reliability and avoid the delays caused by less-than-ideal options.

It’s cost-effective to have quality work stands. Not only do you avoid dealing with fixing mechanical issues of lower-quality equipment, but being able to perform better work on your fleet means avoiding more severe and costly repairs down the road. It keeps everything running smoothly.

At JETechnology, we make platforms you can trust.

We’ve been a proud partner of the U.S. military for years — they need quality ground support equipment they can depend on because their aircraft have to be ready to go at a moment’s notice. When performing frequent and time-sensitive repairs, you can't be worried about your GSE breaking down — that’s why we engineer all our aviation platforms to be military-tough and dependable.

Proud Partner of the US Military

3. Efficiency

Any professional technician will agree — having the right tools is essential to getting the job done right. If you want professional-level work, you need to equip your engineers with professional-level tools. The versatility and ease of use of high-quality aircraft platforms let your team complete more projects in less time — you’ll not only be able to get more accomplished, but your maintenance and repairs will also be more thorough, too.

When you have an MRO setup custom-tailored to your operations, it makes everything run more smoothly. When your technicians can easily access their work area and have the integrated power supplies from aviation platforms, they’ll be able to get right to work.

For inspections, cleaning and replacing, your crew needs access to all parts of your aircraft. If you equip your technicians with the proper tools, you can be sure they can complete their projects the right way.

Your technicians will thank you for upgrading your maintenance equipment. Not only do aviation stands keep your technicians safe, but they also make their day-to-day work a lot easier.

What to Look for in an Aircraft Maintenance Stand

Finding the right aircraft maintenance stand is never a one-size-fits-all solution. As every MRO routine is different, you have to consider your specific needs when deciding how to upgrade your setup. 

How do you choose the right ground support equipment? Consider these three factors:

1. Quality

To maintain high-quality aircraft, you need high-quality maintenance equipment. Because your ground support routine is an essential part of preparing any aircraft for use, you don’t want to worry about if it's going to break down. Choose a work platform that reflects the same quality standards you expect from a precision aircraft — you’ll be happier in the long run.

Our clients need their platforms to be dependable 100 percent of the time, and we design our products to this standard. We make our stands to last — our all-American manufacturing process guarantees that you get the highest-quality in the industry.

2. Design

The design of your maintenance equipment is imperative to its function. Your technicians’ ability to work well depends on having GSE designed explicitly for your aircraft and your facility.

You may solve some basic MRO needs with pre-made stands, but other situations call for the use of custom-made platforms or a combination of the two. In either case, with our maintenance platforms, our experienced engineers simulate drops, heat transfer, fluid flow and fatigue in all our products to make sure everything is built to be beyond safe.

The design of your ground support equipment also depends on your facility. Consider these factors when deciding what maintenance stands are right for you:

  • Work Area Size: Assess the size of your work area before purchasing any ground support equipment. Don’t forget that you need space to store your stands when they're not in use. We offer custom solutions that are tailor-made to your work area.
  • Installation Restrictions: Identify any installation restrictions that may apply to your facility. Make sure there’s enough space to set up your new equipment without interrupting your current maintenance routine. 
  • Load Capacity: Determine how much weight your platforms will need to carry, including the number of people usually working in specific areas as well as the tools and power supply they’ll need with them. 
  • Stand Material: Aluminum is usually the preferred platform material because it's cost-effective and lightweight, but there are other options available for different load capacities and budgets.
  • Compatibility: Some work stands function as modular units that can be used as mobile stands or attached to larger wrap-around platforms. This can significantly increase the functionality and space-efficiency of your setup. 
  • People per Platform: Observe how your MRO team likes to work. Make sure the equipment you choose can safely support the number of people in one area, as well as remain OSHA compliant.
  • Railing: The height of your GSE's railing is an important decision to maximize safety and functionality. It must be high enough to be safe, yet not in a position that will hinder the work of your technicians.

 

3. Cost

It's crucial to get a stand you can trust, but it's also important to stay within your budget. Often, choosing the right combination of custom platforms and pre-made lifts will get you to your price point.

While nothing is as important as the safety of your technicians and getting the job done, we know that every MRO manager is still on a budget — we offer many different types of work stands and material options to fit your needs. We can help you figure out the right combination of equipment for you.

Choosing the Right Aircraft Maintenance Stands

While you may be able to complete some daily tasks with pre-made stands, in some cases, custom-made aircraft stands are the best solution.

Here at JETechnology, we’ve developed a five-step process that’s been making MRO managers happy for years. How? Because we always put our customers first — no detail is too small to stress, and we custom-build everything for your facility with industry-leading designs. Our customers are an integral part of our entire process.

Our five-step process is as follows:

1. Initial Meeting and Collaboration

Our pre-production phase revolves around you. First, we schedule an in-person meeting to assess your maintenance facility. That way, we can recommend options that will be just right for you. We discuss your goals, your budget and any other special requirements you need for your MRO.

Once we have this foundational information, we can begin to discuss designs that fit your GSE requirements and your budget.

2. Design and Development

This next step starts with a hand-sketch. Then, we transfer your design into Solidworks CAD so that you can see your equipment in 3D before we put anything into production. This method makes it easy for collaboration and to make any little tweaks or modifications you may want. 

Design in Solidworks CAD

Our engineers have over 75 years of design experience, and we know how to make functional GSE solutions for any fleet and facility. We’ve worked extensively with the U.S. military — which, of course, has hundreds of unique aircraft that require specialized maintenance solutions. We keep our customers involved in every step of our production process as well, especially during design and development.

3. Manufacturing

We manufacture our aviation platforms in our 12,000 square-foot headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Our lead times are fast because all of our design and production happens right here. And because we do everything in-house, collaboration with our clients is quickly and easily integrated into the production process. Our clients can even visit our facility during the manufacturing process to give input and make sure that all designs are precisely as they envisioned.

Collaboration with Clients

Every product we construct is American-made from the ground up. From the materials to the labor, we do everything right here. We only use materials from our vetted Qualified Suppliers List and maintain full traceability to ensure you get the highest-quality product. We’re able to meet any low-volume to high-volume order.

4. Testing & Documentation

After manufacturing, all of our products undergo rigorous testing to ensure quality. We know that every product we make is a reflection of our company, but the safety of your personnel also depends on it.

After testing, we document every piece of equipment for safety specifications. We also make a user operation and maintenance manual, so you know exactly how to operate each component and keep your GSE working well.
Our Quality Assurance program ensures detailed and thorough quality-checks through every phase of our production process. And before delivery, all of our stands undergo final quality assurance and functionality checks to make sure everything is ready to use.

5. Delivery, Setup and Onsite Training

Before we begin to manufacture you MRO equipment, we plan its transportation to you — this ensures the transition to using your new work stands minimally affects your current routine. Our Engineering and Logistics department works with your facility to make sure the process is seamless.

We ship our products all over the United States and the world, and we have a trusted network of delivery partners we’ve been using for years. Our vetting process ensures we only work with partners that share our same commitment to quality service.

We also work with you to find the best mode of transportation for your stands — we have flexible shipping options and find cost-effective and efficient solutions. Then, our aviation platforms are shipped ready to assemble. Your technicians can begin installation as soon as the stands arrive at your facility.

Upon request, we'll even come to your facility to assist with installation and setup. We’ll demonstrate your stands to your safety inspectors and your mechanics. This way, there's an easy transition into using the new equipment, and your operations can continue smoothly.

Our quality assurance goes beyond our facility — it goes with our products all the way to you. We offer a one-year warranty for all work stands and personally stand behind their quality, even on international orders.
