Aero Specialties is the best place to buy new Eagle tugs and rebuilt Tug MA30′s that we have found.

After operating our TT-12 for the past winter, we’d like to pass along our thanks for such an outstanding vehicle. Operating a G-IV in Ohio in the winter can be difficult. The TT-12 has made moving the fully loaded G-IV on ice and snow an easy and safe operation. We purchased this tug used, but when it arrived, it looked and ran like new, plus we still had warranty on it! We feel that no other tug can meet our needs. Again thank you.

Just giving you an update on the SiPsHitch system.
Overall, this system is running flawless for RDU in capturing real-time data. I am able to train individuals based off the data alone in showing/seeing if they are “rough” with the tow or smooth sailing.
Hopefully, one day, we will install this on our other tractor and other bases will soon follow!
-Chad Dalton, TAC Air
We love our Eagle eXL-16. This tug is versatile, it can tow all of our hangared aircraft without hesitation. It has been excellent in the snow when our gas powered tugs needed chains. The battery life exceeded expectations. Our operation is unique and we have to remote park aircraft at a distance of 1 mile each direction. Having the three seats makes the operation safe by allowing wing walkers to ride along during the tow. We have realized significant savings by utilizing this tug vs. our gas powered tugs on routine maintenance. We like this tug so much that less than 12 months later we are buying 2 more. They are well worth the investment!

Hi Matt. I just want to thank you and your staff for the great service and support. The eTT-8 and the two eTT-12s are working great there and no-emissions makes our facility Ecofriendly. This is what customer service is all about! Thanks again for the great work.
– Dave Shaw, Merck & Co., Inc.
The TMX-50 is a beast and a phenomenal piece of equipment! Well done on this! I see a leap in technology and safety benefits, not to mention the added conveniences that the guys love! Everyone will immediately see the benefits of the TMX-50.

Our team was at Textar Aviation in Dallas for Superbowl help. The weather was ice and snow and they told me that the Eagle Tugs rocked! The Lektro, well, got parked when it was bad.
– Greg Miller, National Account Manager, Air BP Aviation Services
Rod – Just wanted to provide a quick follow up and make your group aware that we are very pleased with the TT-8 tow tractor. The appearance of the product was fantastic as well as the performance when handling our aircraft. It was great doing business with your organization.
– Jay King, Sr. Aircraft Maintenance Manager, Oshkosh Corporation
Our Eagle TT-12G works great in our challenging conditions, including constant snow and ice from November through April. We could not find another tug of equal size that could stand up to what this one does. This tug was originally intended as a short term fix, but after 2 years in service, we bought it!
– Jay Murray, BGR Base Manager, American Airlines
The EAGLE TT-6/2D All Wheel Drive unit arrived at our Soldotna, Alaska office yesterday. Thank you for the fast shipping (13 days from the Order to Delivery). The guys called and said the unit does great in the Alaskan environment. Again, thanks for your help and providing a great piece of equipment.

Just wanted to say what a great job on the tug for North Slope Borough Search & Rescue. The tug and all the extras work great… tell the rest of the crew “great job.”
–John Harbrige, North Slope Borough Search & Rescue
On behalf of everyone at Banyan Air Service, we thank you for allowing us to demo the electric line of Eagle tug vehicles. Our technicians were extremely pleased with the performance, draw bar ratings, and duration of use on both the eTT8 and the MTT electric aircraft tractors. The trailer mounted charging system worked flawlessly and charged the vehicles quickly. Both vehicles maintained a usable charge that allowed us to operate them for 16 hrs. of continuous use. The eTT8 was magical when stacking hangars. The four wheel drive/steering allowed us to maneuver the vehicle in ways we have not experienced before using a conventional tug. Its low stature allowed us to maneuver it under wings of aircraft to maximize space inside hangars. The only downside we discovered was when using a universal tow bar (Brackett TR-34) the visibility was limited. But, when using Aero Specialties interchangeable tow bar and heads there were no issues. The MTT surprised us with its ability to tow large aircraft effectively with such a compact piece of equipment. Both vehicles operated flawlessly and our department was unhappy that we had to relinquish them back to you. We are confident these pieces of equipment will be able to handle the heavy workload encountered during the Super Bowl.

For years I never liked the idea of putting all my eggs in one basket. That was until I began our relationship with AERO Specialties and Eagle. I cannot say enough about the team at AERO Specialties or Eagle for that matter. Matt Sheehan and his team are always on top of any need we may have. They are always very quick to respond anytime a problem may arise, which is very, very seldom. These folks are the epitome of what customer service is all about, before and after the sale.
Eagle Tractors have become our standard for aircraft towing. They are reliable, dependable, and the support from AERO and Eagle is second to none. You cannot go wrong with either.
– Oscar Flowers, TAC Air
Hi Dan, thank you so much for your very quick replies on the cost quotes for baggage tractors and jet tugs. It is refreshing to find someone who really cares and does good work, which I’m sure defines you. I so much appreciate your help.
-Peter Verschoor, Utah DEQ Division of Air Quality
The other day we had our first big snow storm come through. Three feet of snow in 8 hours and -32C. That day we were the 2nd coldest place in the world, next to the South Pole. All of our tugs were useless, BUT our TT-8. Very impressed!
– Rod Hiebert, Calgary, Sunwest Aviation
Matt – I can’t thank you enough for your help with the purchase of a new TLD pushback tractor. Your teams experience and knowledge in this industry is invaluable.

I am writing this testimonial to recognize Rod Gray and Aero Specialties. Rod has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I met him a few months ago as he popped into our Signature FLL location one day. He approached me to tell me a little about himself and Aero Specialties. He offered our location the opportunity to demo his equipment. About six weeks later, the equipment arrived.
Rod left us with two JetGo diesel Hybrid GPU’s and Eagle Mtt-5 electric Tugs. We were amazed and quite pleased with the operating simplicity that the JetGo Hybrid GPU’s offered. The GPU’s require the push of just 1 button to power up or down and you’re in business, it doesn’t get easier than that. I was also quite amazed that the GPU’s will provide 25 amps of power to an aircraft for up to 9 hours without the use of an engine.
Lastly, we found 100% pure electricity Eagle electric aircraft tugs truly remarkable. It is such a smooth and comfortable ride. We ran it from 100% battery without charging it and got 6 straight “running” hours out of it before it required a charge. It wasn’t actually charged for several days, the 6 hours is purely operating time. We were also impressed with that and how quickly the SVS opportunity charger recharges the unit. The turning radius is fantastic! The Tug can do “figure 8’s” within a 4 foot circle, it turns on an absolute dime. Another impressive feature we found quite helpful to better efficiently do our job was the “Inch Mode” feature. Rather than wasting time trying to line-up your Tug to the tow bar and inch it up manually, there is a switch that safely allows you to pull the Tug right to the tow bar and hook-up yourself without actually driving the Tug. It’s really safe and neat, you really need to see it.
We at Signature FLL were extremely impressed with the products that Aero Specialties designed and manufactured. During our three week demonstration period, not one person on our staff could find anything to complain about. Thank you very much for the opportunity to experiment your equipment, we were extremely impressed!

Derek Rose – Please be inform that yesterday at 18:30 hours, arrived in Kavumu Airport (URUASU camp) the new brand Aircraft Tow Tractor Eagle TT-12 AWD in excellent conditions with a box of spare parts. We appreciate the gift. On behalf of the Uruguayan Air Force wish to express our gratitude and appreciation, for all your support during this operation.

We received the new Eagle Tug and it looks and runs really sharp. It is magnificent. I like what I see. It really shows that they have been listening to their customers over the years. Thanks for putting all of our past comments and complaints to good use. Our other Eagle tug is approx. 5 years old. It’s easy to spot all the add-ons and modifications (improvements) that you guys put into the new one. It’s very user friendly. We’re all looking forward to using it for a long time. Thank you very much.
