Train to Maintain

When performing GSE maintenance in-house, securing the proper training ensures repairs are done correctly.

If a ground service provider chooses to perform ground support equipement maintenance in-house, it is critical that those repairs are performed correctly.

Tronair, for example, is making sure it’s equipment is maintained appropriately by educating companies like e2b calibration on best practices to keep its GSE units operating at peak efficiency.

e2b calibration, based in Ohio, announced late last year that it expanded its existing aviation quality services to include on-site training for Tronair ground support equipment.

Tronair GSE instructors tutored e2b’s calibration technicians, allowing e2b representatives to then train other aviation maintenance professionals that use Tronair products in the field at maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities as well as at fixed-base operators (FBO).

Training can be tailored to the needs of the MRO or FBO, and each training session concludes with a personalized question and answer discussion between the instructor and the GSE maintenance technicians.

 “Aviation equipment can be very expensive and critical to aircraft safety,” explains Mike Miner, training coordinator for e2b. “With proper maintenance, ground support equipment can last for 20 plus years.”
