WheelTug backlog adds additional 135 Boeing 737NG aircraft
WheelTug announced the execution of another Slot Purchase Agreement with an undisclosed Boeing 737NG operator. With 135 new reservations the backlog of WheelTug Aircraft Drive Systems system grows to nearly four hundred fifty delivery slots already reserved by eight airlines with many others currently under discussions. The WheelTug electric drive system uses high-performance electric motors, installed in the nose gear wheels of an aircraft, to provide full mobility while on the ground, without the use of the aircraft’s jet engines or tugs for both pushback and taxi operations.
