Q300 & ATR Wing & Tail Docks

Docking is in construction

We love challenges and this project is no exception.  Air New Zealand regional fleet comprise of ATR-72 and Q300 aircraft and wanting to improve their maintenance turnaround times they engaged Blueprint to develop tail and wing docking that would suit both aircraft types in one - we were told his was a world first.  Not shy of a challenge, Blueprint delivered height adjustable Tail docks and fixed height wing docking with adaptability to allow docking to remain in place between service and little adjustment for each aircraft required.  

The docks included;

  • Slide out panels
  • Height adjustable floors
  • Folding handrails
  • Height adjustable stairs
  • Removable floor panels
