This standard applies only to airline ground support vehicle mounted vertical lift devices specifically designed for servicing aircraft while outdoors on a paved airport ramp surface. It is intended to serve as a guide for manufacturers, dealers, users, designers, owners, operators, lessors, lessees and brokers of vertical lift devices for airline support to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Prevention of accidents and personal injuries;
  2. Establishment of criteria for design, manufacture, remanufacture, rebuild/recondition, testing, performance, inspection, training, maintenance and operation;
  3. Establishment and understanding by designers, manufacturers, dealers, owners, users, operators, lessors, lessees and brokers of their respective responsibilities.

The meeting will include discussion of the status of the ANSI/SAIA A92.7-2014 standard in its current form and the direction for the future of the standard. Input from stakeholders in the industry would be valuable to help the subcommittee identify areas of the industry that need to be addressed and provide information on how the subcommittee can distribute its information to all participants in the industry.
