What is aircraft recovery?
RESQTEC is your leading airport recovery equipment specialist. To understand why, you should learn about aircraft recovery first.
When aircraft veers off or overruns the runway during landing or takeoff, this is called a runway excursion. After this happens, aircraft cannot operate independently. Therefore, it must be removed from the runway. That way, it doesn’t lead to long runway closure. This is called aircraft recovery: the timely and safe removal of aircraft. Runway excursions are the most common type of accident reported annually. Thus, it is very important to prepare for one. As a matter of fact, RESQTEC can help you.
Complexities of AR
Aircraft recovery is a very complex process. Also, it carries a lot of risks. Therefore, RESQTEC offers different ways of helping you with those. That way, you are prepared in case of aircraft recovery.
Runway excursion – a highly underestimated risk
A highly underestimated risk. That is what a runway excursion is. It occurs twice every week worldwide. The recovery of aircraft can be a time-consuming operation. Also, the direct costs run in the millions. For example, runway closure at a main airport can even drive up costs to three million dollar per day. RESQTEC is there to help you. Together, we can keep the runway closure at a minimum. As a result, your runway can re-open in four to eight hours.
Possible scenarios of aircraft recovery
There are six possible scenarios in which a runway excursion occurs and aircraft needs to be recovered:
Folded nose gear
Two main gear folded
Main gear folded one side, one engine cut off
Nose and main gear folded one side, one engine cut off
Two main gear folded, both engines cut off
Two main gear and nose folded, both engines cut off
These scenarios are listed based upon occurrence. Not only do they provide a good basic understanding on the complexities deriving from an aircraft recovery, but also RESQTEC can help you with all six scenarios.
