The first pushback of a live aircraft using Menzies Aviation’s new Mototok at Edinburgh Airport ( EDI) recently took place.

Mototoks are an innovative remote-controlled electric pushback tug vehicle, with the ability to push most narrow body jets. Their 100 percent electrical capabilities are environmentally-friendly, with no fuel costs and a long battery life. Remote control operation enables an uncompromised view of the aircraft during pushback, along with wireless headsets allowing operators to stay further away from hazard zones while communicating with flight deck and tower.
