TREPEL Airport Equipment
A world leading manufacturer of cargo high loaders and aircraft tractors for civil aviation.
TREPEL - Perfect to work with
With decades of experience TREPEL has managed to make its equipment a successful brand valued worldwide.
TREPEL Airport Equipment meets the requirements of ground support equipment (GSE) of today's modern airports with a wide product range. With the CHAMP loader family, TREPEL offers cargo loaders with a capacity from 3.5 tons up to 35 tons, completed by a cargo loader-transporter and a container/pallet transporter. The CHALLENGER family of conventional aircraft tractors is capable to handle all commercial as well as military aircraft from the A320 and B737 up to the A380 and the AN225.
With the all-new CHARGER 380, TREPEL has now also a towbarless aircraft tractor. It introduces state-of-the-art features such as anti-collision and obstacle detection, independent hydro-pneumatic front suspension and over-steering/over-torque protection – each of them bringing aircraft towing to the next level of safety and comfort.
As there are many good reasons for electric drive, TREPEL contributes with the electrification of its equipment. More and more models are now also available as e-version.
Dear business partners and friends,
2019 was a very eventful year - with the “inter airport europe” show in Munich as highlight. We could present our first towbarless aircraft tractor CHARGER 380 and made very good progress with the electrification of both our loader and tractor equipment (CHAMP 70We NEO, CHALLENGER 150e and 280e). The strong response of our customers to these two topics strengthens us and proves that we are on the right track. In 2020, we will continue with the electrification, starting with the introduction of the electric version of our 14t loader CHAMP 140. It will have the same high performance and features as its diesel brother. Another innovation is our new pushback training simulator CHARIOT. Already presented at last year’s “inter airport europe” show in Munich, you have now the possibility to test the CHARIOT equipped with the Premium setup in our Visitor Center in Tauberbischofsheim. Further innovations and developments are yet to come, so stay tuned.Carsten Schimkat, Managing Director
The CHALLENGER conventional aircraft tractor fleet is capable to handle pushback, repositioning and maintenance towing of commercial aircraft as well as most military aircraft.
