FAA airport inspections are underway, and the Nashville International Airport managed to net a perfect score on their inspection. The FAA inspections includes inspection or airport records of incidents, actions that were taken and goes over reports of in hose inspections and examines the airport’s overall compliance with safety regulations in virtually all areas of operation.
In order to land their perfect score, Nashville International had to be fully prepared to handle aircraft rescues, airport/aircraft fires and compliant on all employee and operational FAA safety regulations – which is certainly something to be proud of. Every airport should strive for perfection on these inspections, but without the proper training, education and equipment – that perfection will be very hard to achieve.
Employee education is paramount in safety, proper instruction of emergency procedures can save lives in the event of an emergency and the proper training regarding the use of all equipment can prevent potentially dangerous incidents from occurring. Airports that want to provide the safest and most efficient environment for their employees will also be mindful to use the safest and most efficient aircraft towing equipment.
Certain tasks can probably be performed with outdated technology, but it’s impossible to run as smoothly as possible if the most appropriate aircraft towing equipment isn’t being used for a given situation. Operating with old and outdated aircraft tow equipment isn’t just an inefficient way of doing business; it’s an unsafe way to do business.
Aircraft tow tugs and helicopter tugs from Lindbergh Aircraft Tug Co. are among the safest, most efficient and easiest to use in the industry. Lindbergh Aircraft Tug Co. aircraft tow tugs are quick, quiet and will allow one person to easily maneuver an aircraft around tight quarters without having to worry about a breakdown.
