Markutrustningar för flygplatser - Lastare för övre däck - Funktionskrav (ISO 27471, IDT)
This International Standard specifes the functional and performance requirements for a self-propelled container/pallet loader capable of raising air cargo unit load devices (ULDs) to the upper deck of very large capacity freighter (VLCF) aircraft and also to the main deck of any main-line freighter aircraft.
This International Standard does not intend to provide all the design requirements applicable for aircraft upper-deck loaders. Other requirements can be found in separate standards which are also applicable:
- ISO 4116 specifes the additional requirements applicable for conveying surfaces of aircraft ground support equipment intended for handling and loading of baggage and cargo ULDs;
- ISO 6966-1 and ISO 6966-2 specify, respectively, the general and safety-related requirements applicable to all aircraft ground support equipment.
The requirements of this International Standard were determined based on generally recognized assumptions as to:
a) the normally intended use of aircraft ground support equipment, when used on the ramp of international civil airports in order to handle, service or maintain civil transport aircraft;
b) the environmental (surface, slope, weather, lighting, operating rules, traffc infrastructure, staff qualifcation, etc.) conditions prevailing on the ramp area of the majority of international civil airports.
It is assumed that the manufacturers of aircraft upper-deck loaders defne in the relevant documentation the specifcally intended conditions of use and environment for each model, and that the purchasers systematically review their own specifc conditions of use and environment in order to determine whether those stated are adequate, or negotiate with the manufacturer appropriate modifcations to ensure they are.
