GIBRALTAR -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/14 -- WheelTug plc has released footage of its Iron Foot, the mechanical test rig for testing the WheelTug across a range of aircraft and airport operating parameters. The video can be seen and downloaded at http://media.wheeltug.com.
The WheelTug® 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. There are currently 985 Airbus A320 family or Boeing 737 NG and MAX aircraft in the Order Book, over 23 different airlines.
"The Iron Foot is a very important tool in the development and test of the WheelTug systems. It allows us to conduct full simulations of every ground operation of the WheelTug system in every possible operating environment," said Isaiah Cox, WheelTug's CEO. "Because of its versatility and instant configuration changes, this system unlocks far more testing capability than if we had several airplanes doing nothing but system testing around the clock."
