Evolution of the Engine Access Stand
This picture depicts three different revisions of our Engine Access Stands. All three stands are currently in use at major airlines and aircraft manufacturers. The Engine Access Stand provides a safe working solution for challenging aircraft maintenance areas. Tested and operational on most wide and narrow body aircraft, the Engine Access Stand is often used to access other areas both above and below the wing. Although the unit was originally created to solve a safety issue when accessing the A320 Pylon, it soon evolved into a wide body engine access stand. It provides safe and secure access to the nose cowl, fan cowl and pylon disconnect points on a variety of commercial aircraft. The newest version reaches new heights in facilitating 747-8 and A380 outboard engine and pylon access. The unit has moved from a mechanically adjusted tool to a hydraulically actuated precision instrument. The latest version captures many of our customers’ requests for versatility and operational features.
