Aerial Lift Platform Design for Engine Testing Services


During the Fall Semester of 2013, students of the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Engineering MECH 4860 class developed an Aerial Lift Platform Design for Engine Testing Services. The project was designed for the GLACIER facility in Thompson, Manitoba in response to their need for an ALP capable of meeting their size requirements.


This design benefits GLACIER by being able to certify more engines in a shorter period of time and more a substantial decrease in cost at their facility in Thompson, Manitoba. Team #13 (The ALPS) was comprised of Jessica Biggs, Genandi Borisov, Jared Halpin, and Cameron Verwey.

The students would like to thank faculty advisor Kathryn Atamanchuk, professor Dr. Paul Labossiere, and the University of Manitoba for their assistance and support.

On Dec 7, 2022 MB Aerospace hosted an info session for students in the Engineering Access Program @umanitoba.

Thank you to @Boeing Winnipeg, @StandardAero, @magellanaero, @EnviroTREC, and WestCaRD for their informative presentations! 1/2

BUILT IN BRITAIN: This is Rolls-Royce’s £90 million testbed in Derby, the largest and most advanced facility of its type in the world. Rolls-Royce’s recently built UltraFan® demonstrator – the world’s largest jet engine - will soon be tested at the facility. #UKmfg🇬🇧
