CV International and Instant UpRight provided full wraparound maintenance stands for the C-130 aircraft

CV International, representative of Instant UpRight, recently supplied the Alaska National Guard with a full wraparound system to carry out maintenance and inspections on its C-130 aircraft.

CV International, an aircraft ground support equipment specialist, provided the project engineering, aluminium decking, access stairs, on-site installation and technical manuals, while Instant UpRight provided the aluminium truss system and the guardrails.

The new C-130 full wraparound maintenance stands were developed complete with fall protection allowing engineers to access the aircraft at multiple points to carry out spot maintenance.

Logistics proved to be the biggest challenge with this project. Shipping to Anchorage, Alaska is always difficult during the winter period with temperatures often falling below freezing. However, the one-year contract was completed three weeks ahead of schedule.
