Nose & Main Landing Gear Access Platform

Access platform for nose and main gear access on modern wide bodied aircraft.

The staging is based on our standard proven configurations to provide safe access to the required areas in full compliance with international Health and Safety and Working at Height Regulations.


This platform has been designed to assist the aircraft engineer in maintaining modern aircraft in very demanding situations. This unit boasts many of the innovative features found on the much acclaimed main landing gear access platform launched 3 years ago.

Primarily developed to assist engineers accessing B787 nose landing gear and main landing gear the product is also proving its worth in these areas on other modern wide bodied aircraft such as A350 and B777.

The height adjustment and fully enclosed top platform also offer opportunity to use these units for general purpose access on these aircraft and also other narrow bodied aircraft.

A key feature to this unit is the twin front gates which allow access into the NLG bay whilst avoiding the support struts. This also offers the option if required for accessing onto other areas of aircraft such as cargo bays where this access may be required for emergency purposes.

Access to the platform is via an access ladder which locks at single rung increments for safety giving an overall platform height ranging from 1.5m to 2.5m.

The unit as standard comes equipped with an aluminium folding drawbar which when deployed allows the unit to be towed high speed (25kph) with no castors in contact with the ground.
