All features that bring aircraft towing to the next level of safety and comfort.
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
