  Aircraft ground handling tractor - Patent 4955777
The aircraft tractor of claim 1, wherein said boom is connected to said ground handling tractor by a joint whereby it is rotatable and capable of being slewed and whereby it is capable of being luffed upwards and downwards in a vertical plane.
The aircraft tractor of claim 9, wherein said boom is connected to said ground handling tractor by a joint whereby it is rotatable and capable of being slewed and whereby it is capable of being luffed upwards and downwards in a vertical plane.
A preferred example of ground handling tractor in accordance with this invention is thus arranged to be able to be connected to a wide variety of different aircraft having different types of connectors on their nosewheel assemblies and having these located at a range of different locations on the nosewheel assembly of the aircraft.

Services such as guiding the aircraft into and out of the parking position (by way of Aircraft marshalling), towing and lavatory drainage.
Dispatches the aircraft, maintains comunication with the rest of the airline operation at the airport and with Air Traffic Control.

 Advanced Pilot Training: Aircraft Ops - Ground Handling
Aircraft engines will always be warmed up on the ground until proper lubrication and engine operation for the take-off and flight are assured.
Excepting in an emergency, engines will not be run on the ground for warm-up or test unless chocks are placed in front of the wheels of the airplane regardless of whether or not the airplants is equipped with brakes.
During ground operation, the manifold pressure must not exceed the specified maximum cruising manifold pressure, to prevent overheating of the engine while operating in the low rpm (high pitch) position.

 Aircraft ground-handling vehicle - Patent 4658924   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The vehicle does not cause damage to the ground surface or aircraft nose-wheel or tire and is not required to have a substantial weight as is the case with hitherto known such vehicles.
A further disadvantage is that aircraft tend to be parked at exactly the same position relative to an airport terminal, and repeated use of the ramp at the same position would damage the ground surface.
A boom attached to one side of the turntable, such that when the aircraft nose-wheel is loaded on the turntable the boom runs along the right hand side of the aircraft, carries the electrical cable for ground power facilities and the intercom cable connecting the flight deck with the vehicle operator.

 Smooth Landings
A step toward decreasing ground handling difficulties is to standardize and harmonize friction tester values so airports can provide pilots with uniform and reliable runway condition information that is independent of the type of measuring device.
In addition to improving aircraft ground operational safety, the overall results from this program are expected to increase the capacity of airports and may also apply to highway vehicle safety where winter conditions are severe.
Aircraft braking performance and contaminant drag measurements at speeds from 120 to 170 knots have also been identified as part of future aircraft test run matrices, together with monitoring aircraft wheel brake torque variations during braking efforts.
