Apron Management: Standard Operating Procedures for Aircraft Turnaround Mobile App
The airport is responsible to monitor and approve the rules and procedures that safeguard the arrival and departure movements of aircraft on the airports under its control.
How does it work?
In order to keep apron safety to a level as low as reasonably practicable the airport requires that each airline or ground handling service provider must provide to the airport for approval a Ground Handling Manual for their individual operation, and train and designate Turnaround Coordinators from their staff to monitor each aircraft evolution.
In the case where these functions are conducted by contracted service providers it is the responsibility of the Airline Country/Station Manager to provide oversight and surveillance of the service provider to ensure the contracted job functions are completed as required in this manual. The Turnaround Coordinator (TRC) should use the Airport Apron Management mobile app to ensure safe practices are followed.
The use of this app on an iPad, iPhone, or Android device will ensure proper airport operations safety management and general aviation safety. Each air traffic control checklist is saved in the GoCanvas Cloud and can be emailed or printed as a PDF if it needs to be sent to aviation industry officials, regional airport controllers, or kept for your records.
