Ground handling problem areas, and proposed and implemented solutions to them are discussed. Equipment design and maintenance, driver training, safety procedures, supervision of mishaps, feedback, and the "people problem" are the principle areas covered. Certain safety features on equipment already in use are described, including domestic and international catering units, a mobile scissor conveyor, scissor lifts, tugs, luggage trolleys, motorized passenger stairs, and forklifts. The aim of this article is to reduce aircraft ground damage, which is more of a problem than commonly realized.
