WheelTug has completed a test in Memphis of its nosewheel-based e-taxi system. The tests demonstrated the system achieved the full performance spectrum and exceeded its performance targets and also demonstrated it has greatly enhanced aircraft maneuverability needed at tight airports. The tests used a Boeing 737NG.
“We are excited and thrilled to bring WheelTug to the industry. It could be one of the biggest innovations in commercial aviation in years”, said WheelTug CEO Isaiah Cox.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
