MBA-63 Bridge Adapters for Regional Aircraft

Jetbridges often do not interface with the growing population of regional aircraft, so airports and airlines share expensive structural modifications to make jetbridges compatible with regional fleets. The MBA is a portable adapter that fits inside the jetbridge and the aircraft door, making a perfect fit between a conventional jetbridge and the aircraft, at a far lower cost. Some mainline operators also choose the MBA to prevent damage to the aircraft caused by jetbridge contact. The MBA Bridge Adapter can be deployed in a matter of seconds and features a built-in tilt compensator to adjust for cross slope on the jetbridge, as well as automatic brakes which lock as soon as the operator releases the pull handles. Full instructions and diagrams appear right on the adapter and a set-up position gauge is included with each unit.
