As you know, WheelTug has designed its 5-inch-wide electric motor to be housed in the nose wheel of its planes (and has orders from 13 or 14 airlines to lease 785 systems, if it should gain FAA approval), while competitor Honeywell/Safran (with no orders as yet) proposes to put its motors in the main landing gear, snuggled in with the super-hot, mission critical brakes. While either system is going to have to be really rugged, this video suggests that — in the ruggedness department — Honeywell/Safran faces a higher bar.
FLY EL AL
In cue for WheelTug, should the day ever come, their airplanes all already incorporate important state of the art technology. Behold. (Warning: this is a little unnerving.)
