2.10. Apron Safety and Embarking/Disembarking Passengers

[Although some of the requirements are dealt with in the Company Operations Manual, crew coordination is likely required, and therefore some information would be useful in the SOPs. The following deals only with crew coordination responsibilities. It may be advantageous to include specific details, such as:
- safety procedures;
- securing of propellers.
For additional information refer to the CARs and related standards or contact your regional office.

  1. Unless otherwise arranged, the Captain shall escort passengers on the apron to and from the aircraft.
  2. The No. 1 engine propeller is to be tethered whenever embarking or disembarking passengers and wind conditions are such that it may rotate.
