Aircraft Landing Mat

This modular, aluminium panel system allows expeditionary forces to create runways and temporary airfields in areas where there is no time or requirement to install a permanent airfield.

Designed for the UK Royal Engineers as an alternative wearing runway surface, the Aircraft Landing Mat (ALM) is an ideal solution to the poor performance of gravel or dirt runways in challenging conditions.

CAPABILITIES

  • EASY TO INSTALL AND MAINTAIN
  • PREVENTS FOREIGN OBJECT DAMAGE
  • SAFE AND STABLE LANDING AREA
  • SAFE WORKING AREA FOR GROUND PERSONNEL
  • EFFECTIVE IN ALL ENVIRONMENTS
  • SIMPLE PANEL REPLACEMENT
  • SUSTAINS MULTIPLE LANDING AND TAKE-OFF

FIVE KEY ELEMENTS:

  • TRACKWAY® – Aluminium panels that inter-lock to create the landing area.
  • STILLAGES – NATO pallets for storage and transport; can be air portable on request.
  • INSTALLATION KIT – equipment required for installing and removing the Trackway®.
  • GROUND ANCHOR STAKES – to secure the Trackway® to the ground.
  • MEMBRANE – a geotextile membrane that is placed underneath the Trackway® to supress dust, and reduce brownout while protecting the Trackway®.

TRACKWAY®

Aircraft Landing Mat (ALM) can be constructed from a variety of Trackway® to create a best fit solution for our customers;
