Aircraft Jacking

Aircraft Jacking

  • Each aircraft type has specific jacking procedures stated in the manual type itself.
  •  The legs of the aircraft jack should always be inspected to make sure they will not get in the way or otherwise interfere with sales operations once the aircraft is jacked.

 Why aircraft jacking?

  • Landing gear extension retraction test.
  • Place the aircraft into rigging position.
  •  Aircraft weighing and CG calculations.
  • Better use of open ground outlet effect Here are some more things to keep in mind when working with aircraft jacks Never put your hands between the aircraft and the jack pad.
  •  Never align a jack under an aircraft by pounding on the jacklegs. Dented legs can lead to the jack’s collapse.
  •  When lowering the jack, never place your hands on top of the jack near the handwheel safety systems nuts. Pinch points are between the top of the jack and threads on the ram.
  •  Always lower the handwheel safety nut(s) after the jack is under the load. Make sure the handwheel safety nut is seated fully after raising it
  •  Always use a tailor nose stand, when applicable, for additional stability.
  •  Be sure to always wear safety glasses.
  •  Always use handwheel safety nuts.
