AERO Specialties has supplied a wide variety of equipment for Sheltair’s new facility in Broomfield, Colorado, including:
- Deicing equipment
- Cold weather equipped lavatory and potable water service carts
- A selection of AERO Specialties towbars and heads
- A JetGo 28V GPU
- TLD beltloader
- TLD JST tractor
- And last but not least – the amazing TLD TMX-50-8 fitted with SiPsHitch
General Manager, Mr. Craig Foster and Greg Garghill, Operations Manager, were present for training and commissioning of the equipment by the AERO Specialties team, Rod Gray and Dennis Twohy.
SiPsHitch, AERO’s own patented tow force monitoring system, will be a huge bonus to the operation of the TMX-50 tractor – effectively shrinking the tractor and making it extremely safe to use with smaller aircraft. This truly allows an operator to utilize a tractor capable of towing a Boeing 737 as well as a Cessna 150 and everything in between. The additional benefit of active force protection will be a bonus in the slippery conditions that can often be present at this location during the winter months.
Congratulations to Sheltair for choosing a fantastic location to open a new FBO and our best wishes to the team for what we are sure is to be a success.
