AIRPORT RAMP VEHICLE SUPPLEMENT APPROVED

This new four-hour supplement to the basic Defensive Driving Course (DDC) has a curriculum which is designed to help reduce the number of accidents occurring in the aircraft servicing areas of airports. The subjects covered in the Supplement include guide-man signals, jet blast and intake, operator qualification, adverse weather conditions, and work pace. Many other varied subjects are also covered. As with other DDC sessions, the students must first take the basic DDC sessions. Among the forty five different vehicles (all have specialized requirements) used in airport service operations, are baggage tow tractors and trains; cargo, food service, repair and high lift trucks; ground power units; and aircraft tow tractors. In the U.S., damage to aircraft and to support vehicles average about one hundred and forty million dollars annually.
