Types of Engine Transport Devices

This document establishes two types of engine transport devices:

Type A: For split engine pack transport (mainly lower deck)

Type B: For full engine transport (mainly main deck)

Type A

Will be used for shipping of split engine packs,

e.g. Core-engine packs

Fan-engine packs

or additional equipment required on air cargo pallets of the below size, as applicable.

60.4 in x 125 in (1534 mm x 3175 mm) (Size Code L)

88 in x 125 in (2235 mm x 3175 mm) (Size Code A)

96 in x 125 in (2438 mm x 3175 mm) (Size Code M)

The transport device shall be compatible with aircraft restraint systems designed for NAS 3610/AS 36100A type 2 ULDs or equivalent STC approved ones.

Type B

Will be used for shipping full engine packs, generally referred to as "quick engine change" (QEC) kits, compatible with the allowable aircraft volume on integrated air cargo pallets/stands or air cargo pallets of the size

88 in x 125 in (2235 mm x 3175 mm) (Size Code A)

96 in x 125 in (2438 mm x 3175 mm) (Size Code M)

96 in x 196 in (2438 mm x 4978.4 mm) (Size Code R)

96 in x 238.5 in (2438 mm x 6057.9 mm) (Size Code G)

and compatible with aircraft restraint systems designed for NAS3610/AS36100A type 2 ULDs or equivalent STC approved ones.

The restraint of the engine transport device onto the pallet shall use appropriate tie down devices complying with any requirements of aircraft Weight and Balance manuals, pallet manufacturer's, or engine transport device manufacturer's instructions.

For both types of engine transport devices the use of pallet nets is not recommended.
