Nowadays aircraft machinery operators all over the world are turning to the towbarless aircraft towing. It is carried out without a towing bar (carrier) by fixing aircraft nose strut directly on the tow tractor.
Allows to save the area of sheds, parking lots and production halls thanks to the aircraft space-saving.
Fuel costs reduction
Towbarless tractors have a significantly lower weight, which reduces fuel consumption.
Automatic aircraft fixation as well as the absence of transfer necessity, service and keeping different kinds of carriers qualitatively increases the efficiency of ground handling.
The less demand for the covering
The comfortable towing with low quality of the apron covering
The vertical impacts on the aircraft nose strut are absorbed by the tow suspension, the longitudinal twitching is decreasing because of the aircraft partly loading.
Passability in winter conditions
Because of transferring aircraft weight from the aircraft nose strut to the tow tractor the considerable increase of the towing characteristics is achieved.
