Raloid Showcases Innovation through its new WheelTug Program
The WheelTug system includes small electric motors in the nose wheels powered by the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit. It enables aircraft to drive forward and backward without using its engines or external tugs. This allows pilots to push back and maneuver around the gate without tug or engine delays. The ultimate goal of the system is to save time and fuel while also extending engine life, which results in reduced emissions and significant cost savings.
