It can be a real strain to get a heavy airplane up the incline that seems to lead into most hangers and over that annoying lip right where the hanger meets the apron or ground. When the airplane wheel bumps up against that lip at the edge of the hanger, it creates resistance. In that 1/2 inch to an inch of pavement differential lies tremendous potential risk for injury. Particularly when such tasks must be performed repeatedly, damage to soft muscle tissues –especially of the back and shoulders – can occur. It is in the ergonomic design of Lindy’s aircraft tug, inappropriate exertion is eliminated and the risk of musculoskeletal injury is significantly reduced.

For ergonomics and safety information relating to the movement of small aircraft, as well as other industry related news, please go to
