Reliable ground support equipment essential in conflict zones

Recotech attended the 18th annual Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refueling conference and exhibition in Madrid, Spain. Speakers discussed the importance of airlifting- for both military purposes as well as delivering humanitarian aid.

A key point shared amongst speakers with attendees was the crucial value of simple and reliable ground support equipment (GSE). Quick turnaround times in conflict zones are absolutely necessary and must be supported by effective GSE. Recotech produced WingLift is a prime example of exemplary and easy to maintain GSE. During the exhibition, attendees were keen in noting Winglift as a product that meets demands from an operational end-to-end perspective. Its manual operation, nimble maneuverability and robust design make it well suited for quick turnaround times in zones of conflict.

Day three of the event was reserved for a site visit to the Airbus factory at Getafe Air Base where Recotech and other attendees were able to see firsthand manufacturing of the A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft.
