Enhancing logistics vehicles on airport aprons with assistant and autonomous capabilities offers the potential to significantly increase safety and efficiency of operations. However, this research area is still underrepresented compared to other automotive domains, especially regarding available image data, which is essential for training and benchmarking AI-based approaches. To mitigate this gap, we introduce a novel dataset specialized on static and dynamic objects commonly encountered while navigating apron areas. We propose an efficient approach for image acquisition as well as annotation of object instances and environmental parameters. Furthermore, we derive multiple dataset variants on which we conduct baseline classification and detection experiments. The resulting models are evaluated with respect to their overall performance and robustness against specific environmental conditions. The results are quite promising for future applications and provide essential insights regarding the selection of aggregation strategies as well as current potentials and limitations of similar approaches in this research domain.
