8862 — Aircraft Attending*

This standard is used to grade nonsupervisory work concerned with the servicing of military and civilian aircraft both foreign and domestic. The work involves meeting and guiding incoming aircraft to appropriate parking areas, directing aircraft into parking position through hand signals, securing aircraft (e.g., chock wheels, attach ground wires, and install lock pins and engine covers), refueling aircraft, obtaining and operating aircraft ground support equipment (e. g., gas turbine compressors and auxiliary power units), and servicing (i.e., checking and replenishing) aircraft with oil, hydraulic fluid compressed air, nitrogen, liquid oxygen, demineralized water, and other consumable materials. Most work requires the incidental use of a variety of trade practices associated with occupations such as motor vehicle operating, tractor operating, and fuel distribution system operating.
