WheelTug is a powerful new system capable of allowing aircraft to taxi both backwards and forwards without the use of tugs or engines.

Using two small proprietary in-wheel Chorus Meshcon motors, pilots can turn off their engines and realize the following benefits:

  • Substantial fuel savings
  • Increased safety and flexibility of operations
  • Faster turnaround times
  • Reduced engine wear and repair costs
  • Reduced emissions and noise pollution

Chorus Motors developed the patented technology that makes WheelTug possible: an AC induction machine with unparalleled torque density, compact form factor, and aerospace-worthy safety characteristics.

Whether your aircraft are running commuter flights in the heart of North America, or ferrying remote cargo to remote airfields, the Chorus-based WheelTug system is designed to reduce operators' fuel, time, emissions and maintenance costs while boosting safety, reliability and fleet economics.
