WheelTug makes flying faster
WheelTug reduces the time an airplane spends on the ground, allowing it to spend more time in the air. The WheelTug system includes small electric motors in the nosewheels that enable an aircraft to drive forward and backward without using its engines or external tugs. This enables pilots to pushback and maneuver around the gate without tug or engine delays. The time savings can be dramatic -- allowing airlines to get more out of their aircraft and passengers to get more out of their day.
