Portuguese term or phrase: help with about 10 terms
Hello! I would be very grateful if one or more people could help with one or more (or all!) of the following terms I would like to check (I have had a very large list of them to translate)Sorry to provide a list, but I'm really suffering due to the fact the Eurodic is down. Even if you only know one term it would be of great help, as aviation is not usually my field.
All the terms are items you would find on an aeroplane.
Thank you so much,

portable stairs, accessories bag, ski net

I think the "escada" refers to the stairs that passengers use to de-plane when the plane is not parked at a jetway.

bolsa de apetrechos - could be accessories bag. Gadget bag was my first choice but probably too informal a term.

ski net - apparently the plane sometimes transports skiers. In regular commercial aircraft in the US (Boeings etc.) the skis are put in separate plastic bags, but I don't know whether there are special cargo nets for them.

Agree with some of previous translations

The point is this seem to have been translated to portuguese, causing some mistakes.
I suppose it's an extreme sports aircraft or something like it.

Visor de tiro - Shooting window
Bolsa de apetrechos - Gear Bag
Garfo para reboque - Towing fork
Pau de carga - ?? (never heard of it)
Escada portatil - portable stair
Chaves - keys or wenches (depending on the context)
Rede bagageiro - luggage net
Rede (cortina)contra fumaca - Smoke curtain (restrict the lateral spread of smoke and hot gases)
Rede para esqui - Ski net
Tampa da caverna - Cage door (??)
Labiofones (this is not portuguese, however...) - microphones
Pilones (neither is this) - Pylons
Lançadores - Launchers
Poltronas - Seats
Tapetes (cabine e pax) - Carpets
Revestimento do armario electrico - Electrical Cabinet Covering
Divisorias - Partition Walls
Calhas - gutters
Pisos - floor covering
Transceptor - transceiver (in fact I suppose it's a walkie-talkie)

Very funny mix.
Hope it can be helpful, if you need any help, feel free to contact me, ok?
PS: This is for Brazilian Portuguese
