Creating the Perfect Product
5 years of detail-oriented developing time later, the first Mototoks hit the market: Battery-powered industrial tugs providing an all-round view around the aircraft by high technology remote control, operated by a single person.
By now, there are Mototoks available for all aircrafts up to 195 tons. They are in use by international FBOs, MROs, aircraft manufacturers, special forces, airports, airlines, navy, military, industrial companies, businessmen and individuals with their own fleet.
