Many airport authorities and FBO’s are not yet fully prepared to handle larger aircraft. There is a lack
of adequate and suitable aircraft tow tugs at many airports. Good and appropriate tugs are designed
by people who understand the importance of being able to move and re-position an aircraft around a
hangar and airfield with absolute ease and accuracy. Too many aircraft tow tug products offered in
todays market are older technologies, or products that are not really suitable for todays modern aircraft and busy flight operations.
