The Autumn issue of Airside International features some in-depth features on subjects close to the heart of some of the real specialists of the airside world, including cargo containers, on-stand power sources and the world of on-airport blast and noise mitigation. We have interviews with GSE experts at Menzies and Etihad Airport Services, as they tell us about what they look for in GSE and how they go about making their fleet procurement decisions. We also talk with Dane Anderson, president and CEO of WASP, to get the perspective of a leading GSE manufacturer, as well as Haldun Aksoy, managing director of Turkish GSE manufacturer Timsan on his company’s plans for expansion. Airside also sees how Stuttgart Airport is playing a leading role in driving change toward more environmentally friendly handling equipment at this busy German gateway. With winter just around the corner, regular contributor David Smith looks at the complexities of on-airport deicing, while Harley Khan sees how de-icing fl uid supplier Clariant has brought many experts in this fi eld together to consider how the industry can move forward together to best approach the evolving problems associated with aircraft de-icing techniques and technologies. Chris Lewis assesses the value of GSE leasing, while Airside rounds off with its usual look at the breaking news of the last couple of months.
