Aircraft Recovery Task Force (ARTF)
The Aircraft Recovery Task Force (ARTF) assists the Engineering & Maintenance Group (EMG) in addressing aircraft recovery requirements for new larger aircraft. The EMG provides guidance to the ARTF and maintain oversight of its activities through the approval and review of the work programme. The ARTF can bring forward to the EMG new subjects, not on the work programme, that need immediate attention.
Role of ARTF
- Work with OEMs to develop practical and safe aircraft recovery procedures to minimize secondary damage to the aircraft structure and minimizing exposure to health and safety risks
- Work with equipment manufacturers and make recommendations for the development of new recovery tools
- Recommend updates for ICAO Airport Services Manual (Doc 9137) Part 5 Removal of Disabled Aircraft
- Increase awareness of economic and operational impact of aircraft recovery
ARTF meets once a year. Membership is open to airlines, OEM and IATA Strategic Partners.
