iTowBots Debuts

The iTowBots are a remote control aircraft tugs and are now available at Aircraft Spruce. The iTowBot loading sequence is as easy as driving the unit directly under the nosewheel of your aircraft. iTowbot is engineered so that when the aircraft loads, the weight of the loaded aircraft doesn't inhibit zero-turn capability. A foot-operated release allows the operator to unlock the swivel carriage and back out from beneath the nosewheel. The operator can drive the unit back into its spot into the hangar, with no tugging, pushing or rolling up extension cords required.
