WHAT IS AIRCRAFT RECOVERY?
RESQTEC is your leading airport recovery equipment specialist. To understand why,
you should learn about aircraft recovery first.
When aircraft veers off or overruns the runway during landing or take off, this is called a runway excursion. After this happens, aircraft cannot operate independently. Therefore, it must be removed from the runway. That way, it doesn’t lead to long runway closure. This is called aircraft recovery: the timely and safe removal of aircraft. Runway excursions are the most common type of accident reported annually. Thus, it is very important to prepare for one. As a matter of fact, RESQTEC can help you.
