The Specialist Access Division of Youngman Group has recently completed a project on behalf of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team (RAFAT) to design and manufacture a viewing platform for use with its Hawk aircraft. More
Key design criteria were manoeuvrability and size, which have been achieved by incorporating lockable swivel castors within a lightweight construction that can easily support up to four people at a time thanks to a 364kg safe working load.
In addition, to reduce the risk of children falling into the cockpit area the height of the platform could not exceed one metre.
