AC AIR Technology, T1H2 Helicopter Tug, Chino Airport, Chino, California.

For 12 years, AC AIR Technology has been developing and manufacturing diminutive tugs that slide themselves under the nose or tail wheels of light airplanes or, more recently, under the skid gear of light helicopters. The historic Sud Aviation SA 341F2 Gazelle helicopters pictured here are well suited to showing off AC AIR’s one-handed remote-controlled T1H2 Helicopter Tug, which brought the former military aircraft out of their hangar and easily tugged them back in afterward.
