AIRLIFT towbarless aircraft tugs are designed and manufactured in Britain to the highest standards. Use of innovative electrical and electronic components allows the utmost safety, quality and reliability, providing a convenient, reliable and efficient method of moving all aircraft
Technical highlights include:
SAFE - Towbarless tugs are safer because the tug supports the weight of the aircraft nosewheel, and uses the aircraft weight to balance. Because of this, there is no towbar that can bend or break and lead to an aircraft rolling away without brakes.
NON-POLLUTING - Electric tugs are cleaner because, unlike a diesel, there's no need to warm up and there are no fumes pumping into the atmosphere if you have to wait for an aircraft.
The AIRLIFT lifting procedure is safer because the tug supports the weight of the aircraft nosewheel, and uses the aircraft weight to balance.
The AIRLIFT manoeuvring procedure is non-polluting, clean and efficient.
The new twin-steer AL100 AIRLIFT has a swivel seat and 2 control positions for easy manoeuvring.
AIRLIFT tugs are electrically driven and so can be used in and out of aircraft hangars.
All AIRLIFT tugs are certified to the regulation 9 of the LOLER legislation as well as being Airside approved.
2 models available: AIRLIFT AL45 for ramp weights up to 45,000kg, and AIRLIFT AL100 for ramp weights up to 100,000kg.
