Work involves the application of operational procedures and applicable licensing and regulatory requirements to the operation and positioning of manually-operated and motorised embarkation/disembarkation equipment across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian aviation industry.
This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to operate aircraft embarkation/disembarkation equipment, including pre- and post-operational checks of the equipment, pre-positioning the equipment prior to the arrival of the aircraft, positioning the equipment against the aircraft on arrival, and retracting the equipment prior to departure. Types of embarkation/disembarkation equipment may vary from airport to airport and may include both manually-operated and motorised equipment. The generic performance criteria provided in this unit may therefore need to be adapted, as required, to accommodate the operating procedures recommended by the manufacturers of the embarkation/disembarkation equipment concerned. Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements are applicable to this unit.
