Turboway Passenger Boarding Ramp

The Turboway Passenger boarding ramp is a universal ramp designed to serve the Q-400 and many other regional aircraft. The Turboway boarding ramp allows easier access for all passengers, disabled and non-disabled. this ramp, with its adjustable slope and pivoting bridge, lays over existing aircraft stairs and provides faster more comfortable means of boarding and deplaning. The Turboway boarding ramp uses a hand operated hydraulic pump for adjusting to various aircraft heights and has a detachable tow bar.

The Turboway passenger ramp is a universal ramp designed to serve commuter size aircraft. This ramp allows easier access for all passengers, disabled, and non-disabled. With its adjustable slope and pivoting bridge; it lays over existing aircraft stairs and provides a faster, safer, and more comfortable alternative to boarding and deplaning.

Express Ramp for all Regional Aircraft up to CRJ900

Regional Express Ramp

The Regional Express Ramp works much the same way as the Turboway boarding ramp. The express ramp is fully adjustable using a hand crank style lift mechanism and also features a pivoting bridge. The Regional Express Ramp serves the Q-400 as well as many other  regional aircraft.

The Express Ramp offers some of the same advantages as jetbridge boarding: a gentle slope into the aircraft, a place where a number of people can stand safely, and a seamless dignified boarding process for passengers with mobility impairments, as well as those without. The Express Ramp is equipped with a manually operated “crank up” style lift for adjusting the height, rather than the hydraulically operated system found on the Turboway ramp.
