Alpha Intro and Usage

Moving Tail Wheel Planes and Tips


Optimized Software

Every tug comes installed with a computer software optimized for your specific plane. Nose gear damage and nose gear shimmy are completely avoidable with your Alpha.

Regenerative Braking

The hybrid system allows your tug's motor to act as a generator and recharge its batteries as the tug is slowing or stopping your plane. This means your tug will last longer on a single charge and extend your batteries life.

Auto Throttle Technology

Every Best Tugs makes up to 30 adjustments a second to maintain a constant speed, even on slopes. That means your plane will move just as smoothly coming out of the hangar as it will going in. Safe guards are also programmed in that will trip to prevent you from damaging your aircraft.

Pulse Width Modulation

A3 will help you move your plane into the tightest corners of your hangar. Even at a slow crawl, you will have the A3's full torque and power at your disposal.

Expertly Engineered

Alpha's Quick Connect™ system is the most simple, safe, and secure way to move aircraft with wheel pants, tail wheel, and retractable gear aircraft. No more crouching or bending over to hook up your plane. Save your plane as well as your back.

You'll Never See Your Hangar the Same

With state-of-the-art technology at the core, durable hardware, and industrial framework at your fingertips; you'll use every square foot of space like never before. You can now put the same confidence in your tug as you do your plane.
