It includes many safety features that you need when performing maintenance.

One more optional feature is the Soft Touch System. This lessens damage and the risk of any accidental contact in aircraft maintenance. This package option provides a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors that de-activate platform movement functions and if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface, the driver is alerted.

This jib could be utilized in both uncontrolled and controlled areas due to steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts.
