Latest Flying Carpet from Platform Sales & Hire
UK Access Company Platform Sales & Hire have just completed and supplied their latest Flying Carpet VM26S truck-mounted scissor lift. This unit is slightly different from the usual version as the access platform is mounted on an IVECO chassis which is fitted with a crew cab. The larger cab allows for up to 7 engineers to be transported out to the aircraft ramp together, eliminating the need for extra vehicles on the airport apron, which can be congested at times when an aircraft needs a quick turnaround.
The unit will be working at Manchester Airport and has been supplied to one of the World’s largest suppliers of aircraft Ground support equipment.
The Flying Carpet is in use with airlines all over the World and has continued to be popular since its first introduction in 2006. It continues to be manufactured at PS&H’s engineering division in Milton Keynes. The picture shows Platform Sales & Hire directors Chris Caney and Duncan Howard.
