Pilots and aircraft personnel are trained to take countless safety precautions every time they prepare for takeoff. Whether the aircraft is a military vessel or a commercial passenger jet, these precautions take into account everything from the maintenance of the plane to the weather conditions. It is because of these precautions that trained pilots and aviation teams can fly safely from takeoff to landing.
Not all precautions that go into ensuring a safe flight have anything to do with the pilot, or even
anything to do with the aircraft itself. On the contrary, among the most important steps for airfield personnel to take in the lead up to a flight is FOD sweeping of the airfield. FOD (or foreign object debris) can pose a substantial risk to aircraft, aircraft personnel and passengers. As such, having a dependable method of sweeping your airport’s tarmac and eliminating any foreign debris is vital for ensuring safety and preventing costly damage.
