What are the requirements on aircraft marker cones (a.k.a. safety cones) according to IATA IGOM-96, i.e. size & weight?

  • $\begingroup$ For those that are voting to close this question as "unclear what you're asking": The question is about the safety cones that are places around an aircraft to mark the wingtips etc. They need to have a certain size (to be visible) and a certain weight (not to be blown over the manoeuvring area in the slightest of wind), and there are possibly more requirements. The question asks about these requirements. $\endgroup$ – DeltaLima May 23 '19 at 10:50

According to IATA Airport Handling Manual, safety cones should

  • be conical in shape
  • be of a minimum height of 750 mm (22.2″)
  • have a minimum base weight of 4.53 kg (10 lbs)
  • be orange in color with reflective striping.

    $\begingroup$ I write (non aviation) indistry specs for work . "Be conical in shape" is a spec speak equivalent of "don't be cheeky mate, you know one when you see one" $\endgroup$ – crasic May 23 '19 at 17:44
