TNA Aviation Technologies announced the North and South American release of the TowFLEXX 120e HG, the industry’s most advanced and versatile electrical towbarless aircraft tug in it’s class. This product combines the best in flexibility, adaptability, practical features, tow capacity and capability.

“Customers have been asking for more affordable and compact tow tug systems, especially in the aircraft weight range of 10,000 to 30,000 lbs MTOW, and we’ve responded by introducing a smart electrical aircraft tow system, making it much easier for pilots and ground crews,” said Michael Turwitt, Managing Partner of TNA Aviation Technologies. “The TowFLEXX 120e HG features a powerful electric motor and many capabilities that deliver functionality normally only found in bigger and more expensive tow tugs,” he added.


The towbarless electrical tug design combines functionality with an esthetic look. Customers can use this versatile tug for a wide range of aircraft, all the way up to medium size corporate jets, both with single or twin nose wheel configuration. There are no special adapters required and loading the aircraft nose gear is fast and easy. The ergonomic multifunctional tiller steering control can be operated with one-hand. Additionally, visible markers and anti-slip covering allow for improved wheel tracking. The advanced multi-speed transmission drive technology helps further to increase the ease of maneuvering.

“The TowFLEXX 120e HG is the new standard for electric tugs in this size class, providing users with the highest degree of protection. I’m very excited about this launch. The new design offers usability combined with ruggedness and I’m confident our customers will see and appreciate the level of innovations in this very competitively priced product,” says Uli Nielen, Co-Owner of TNA.
