Portable Aircraft Ramps are designed to lay over and extend the existing aircraft ramp door. Works with C5, C130 and C17 aircrafts. Made in the USA!
These portable aircraft ramps are designed to lay over the top of the existing aircraft ramp door and extend the door out to allow additional clearance for loading military vehicles and utility trailers. This aircraft assist ramp system eliminates ground clearance problems.
The portable aircraft ramp system is built in the USA (West Bend, WI) and is constructed of lightweight 47,000 psi yield aluminum allowing the system to break down in minutes and store compact inside the aircraft. This complete airplane ramp system can be set up in a couple of minutes and is very simple to use.
We spent many years designing and testing this aircraft ramp system on the C5, C17 and C130 aircrafts. These heavy duty Aircraft Loading Ramps are ATTLA Certified (2012.02.06.1) for USAF C-130, C-130J-30, C-17, C-5 Aircrafts (AIR TRANSPORTABILITY TEST LOADING AGENCY).
The aircraft ramp system is rated at 20,000 lb per axle and it consists of 94" long ramps x 30" & 36" wide. Ramps can be configured in any of the kits listed above. Customer can also configure their own system to meet their specific loading needs. Kits also include center, and end support stands that adjust to variable heights.
The existing aircraft door holds the support stand in place by sitting on a flat plate on the bottom of the stand. To protect the aircraft existing door we bonded a rubber pad to the underside of the top ramps that lay on the aircraft's door. The bottom ramps have been re-designed to now sit flat on the ground. The pictures show an earlier design but have since been updated. You can view the drawing to see the new style system.
