Dear business partners and friends
The inter airport Europe 2019 was once again a very successful event and it was a pleasure to getting personally in touch with so many of you at our stand. Our first towbarless aircraft tractor, the CHARGER 380, had its world premiere in Munich and the visitors were very enthusiastic about it. Furthermore, the electrically powered aircraft tractors CHALLENGER 150e and CHALLENGER 280e and the reconceptualized electrically powered CHAMP 70We NEO drew keen interest. In cooperation with ROSE Simulation we had a pushback training simulator indoors where our visitors could try to perform a proper pushback in a virtual environment. With this simulator, our customers have a new possibility to train their staff. To get an impression of our stand and our activities at this year's inter airport, please have a look at our picture gallery or one of our social media channels.
