Airport technical equipment - specials that help 3

Airport technical equipment - specials that help 3

Part 3 - When everything does not seem as it should

Despite all care, it may happen that the aircraft doesn’t work as it should. For such cases the Pardubice Airport has a solution – special technology. If APU (Auxiliary Power Unit), which produces the electricity needed for take-off, pressurizes the air conditioning and starts the aircraft’s main engines, doesn’t perform, the ASU (Air Starter Unit) comes to the scene. The external air starter is a power source used to provide the initial rotation to start large engine. There are six tons of the compressed air in the tank, which is enough for approximately three planes. The air is complemented by the compressor; it takes six hours to fill the tank from empty to full.

The Pardubice Airport also has three GPUs (Ground Power Units, generators of electricity), which produce alternating electric current and direct current need for the aircraft’s taking off. Each of them fully replaces APU and allows the aircraft a safe start.

Into the category of specials that help in the event that all is not as it should, there can also be included the equipment of local firefighters. Fire Rescue Service at the Pardubice Airport is provided by the Czech Army, the operator of the airport, but civilian part also has a small unit of volunteer firefighters. Volunteer firemen possess an equipped fire engine and moreover, all of them must comply with the specialization required for the service at the airport. Although each of the volunteer members has some civilian job; they are in service at the airport in regular shifts and, if necessary, they strengthen the military fire brigade, which is located at the Pardubice Airport.
