JetPorter Tug Maintenance

JetPorter sets the standard for the safe and efficient ground movement of aircraft fleets, with a complete line of towbarless, environmentally friendly electric tugs. The JetPorter line was acquired by Tronair in 1998, an industry leader serving aviation customers since 1971. JetPorter’s commitment to continuous improvement has led to the introduction of a number of innovative, unique, and effective features that provide customers with a wide range of options for managing their aircraft fleet.

Why JetPorter?

Jet Porter: A Tronair Company Maintenance

JetPorter tugs do not use a towbar, and models equipped with the SOFTCAPTURE® cradle connect to the aircraft without touching any part of the nose landing gear. JetPorter ground tugs feature independently excited motors coupled directly to the solid rubber drive wheels, the only tractor available on the market with this highly effective configuration. JetPorter tugs also utilize regenerative braking for smooth and safe deceleration.

Jetporter Tug Maintenance

All JetPorter ground tugs include:

  • Environmentally friendly electric motors
  • Regenerative braking for safe and efficient deceleration
  • Towbarless design
  • Dual motors
  • Standardized parts for ISO compliant aftermarket support
  • Available SOFTCAPTURE® technology

JetPorter also offers 4 different models that can support virtually any fleet of aircraft regardless of size. The larger JetPorter tractors utilize variable speed motors connected directly to the drive wheels, which provide the best turning radius in the industry, particularly useful in tight hangers or on busy aprons.
