Aircraft Loading Subgroup (ALS)

Working to address ground handling issues and improve safety

With an average of three loading errors a day being reported to the CAA, the ALS was set up to reduce loading errors involving UK aircraft or at UK aerodromes.

GHOST has also produced two educational DVDs:

Safety in the Balance was presented by Iron Maiden front man, and Boeing 757 Captain, Bruce Dickinson. It was released in 2011 to reiterate to all those involved with aircraft loading the importance of correct mass and balance calculations and the securing of loads.


In 2012, One Team One Goal, presented by one of Great Britain's most successful and recognised Paralympians, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, was released to provide specific guidance to the carriage of persons of reduced mobility and their mobility aids by air.
