Working from Heights

Ground Service Equipment


Not only do the aircraft engineers face the issue of how to safely access and egress the many different types of aircrafts, they also constantly face the perils of working at heights unprotected in high risk areas of the aircraft i.e. wing tips, nacelle struts and centre fuselage. This danger is further exacerbated when any type of work at heights need to be completed outside a hanger and the risks involved increase dramatically with other factors needed to be taken into considerations including weather.

CAS in partnership with BTS can provide a comprehensive GSE solution for MRO’s and airlines. Featured products below have application across multiple aircraft types, however we also offer bespoke solutions depending on your requirements for aircraft specific items such as nose, wing or tail docks, radome cover, cargo door or APU platforms, wing position lifting platforms plus other items. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.

BTS AirStair - Free Standing Mobile Stair Access System

The BTS AirStair provides two users with a portable means of accessing areas on multiple aircraft types via a full stairway set-up and provides overhead fall protection when working on the aircraft (from the ground to the work area).

Adjustable outriggers enlarge the base footprint to stabilise and level the BTS AirStair when in use and retract into the base of the stair to create a small and mobile unit for towing and transportation. Click here for more information.
