The T o wFLEXX ® Advantage Towing and maneuvering Aircraft with T o w - FLEXX ® powered by F l y e r- T ruck ® is easy much safer and definitely the most advanced Method of handling Fixed Wing and Helicopter Aircraft. Turning the ROTV turning the nose gear and moving the aircraft are three different actions. The unique To wFLEXX ® 360° technology feature makes the difference. Overall this results in much less space requirements and elevates the hangar and apron utilization. Exit Path required Conventional Tow Tug with Towbar Easy Exit Path The conventional method of hangar utilization. The very same hangar utilizing The hangar is under-utilized and not used at full capacity. The hangar owner is losing revenue. Thanks to T o wFLEXX ® hangar utilization and revenue can be increased up to 40. Our advanced ROTVs signifi- cantly increase the number of aircraft you can place in any hangar. The highly flexi- ble and versatile towing equipment can create up to 40 additional hangar space in average 35 depending on the mix of aircraft gener- ating additional revenue for the FBO or hangar owner / operator. Irrespective of for- ward or reverse motion our ROTVs will always be the un- matched tool and solution to create real additional space inside the hangar. Underutilized Hangar Space 4

Perimeter Fence Perimeter Fence Perimeter Fence Moving an aircraft the conventional way with a tug and towbar or a traditional towbarless tug requires a lot of space. In order to steer the aircraft considerable movement is required. Turning the nose gear can only be achieved by moving the air- craft forward or back. Extreme cau- tion is required to prevent nose gear oversteering and to avoid damage to the sensitive nose wheel landing gear. The aircraft must be moved several yards before the nose gear can be turned and to steer in a new direction. This conventional method requires significant space. Example 1 with Conventional Tug Example 2 with Example 3 with + 75 + 20 T o wFLEXX ® ROTV’s Remote Operated Tug Vehicle’s provide many Advantages. One major Benefit is the Ability to generate additional Parking Hangar Space. Unmatched flexibility thanks to the revolutionary and proprietary 360° turn feature. You can park and position aircraft by utilizing available space that’s not reachable with a conventional tug.

The T owFLEXX ® Difference Thanks to the unique 4-wheel 360° steering and drive control technology the advanced TowFLEXX ® 600 RC can literally turn any aircraft on the spot. That’s highly innovative provides more space additional revenue for the operator and is un- matched compared to any other product in the market. T o wFLEXX ® ROTV’s Remote Operated Tug Vehicle’s are more flexible and simultaneously protect your Aircraft like no other Product in this Category. Operating in tight areas and generating addi- tional hangar space is the hallmark of T ow - FLEXX ® . Operating conventional tow tractors with towbar or conventional towbarless tugs is cumbersome and time consuming. Reaching corners or parking an aircraft against a wall is impossible with those old technolo- gies. Conventional tugs also require significant room for an exit path. Hangar Wall Conventional Tow Tug with Towbar Towbarless Tug Exit Path Exit Path Exit Path Additional Hangar Space Hangar Wall Hangar Wall TowFLEXX ® is providing unmatched flexibil- ity and generates additional hangar space. Area required to turn an aircraft 90° or 360° with 6 Unique and “best-in-class”. The smart 360° steering technology compen- sates rotational resistance and equalizes transverse forces. No gimbal mounted platform and no hydraulic compensators are required. 360° 360°

T o wFLEXX ® ROTV Remote Operated Tug Vehicle’s are designed for easy Operations. With just a few easy Steps the Aircraft can be engaged secured lifted and towed. STEP Capturing Releasing the Nose Wheel STEP Securing the Nose Wheel STEP Towing the Aircraft  The Engagement Process is initiated by activating a simple Command via the Re- mote Control  Drive the ROTV towards the Nose Wheel  Stop when the Wheel is inside the Cradle STEP Closing Opening the Gate  The HDCS Gate closes and the Nose Wheel Twin or Single Tire will be locked into Position  The same Process in Reverse when the Nose Wheel is released  The Wheel Safety Bracket moves into Position and automatically adjusts for different Wheel Sizes  The Nose Wheel is now completely secured and the Cradle lifts up raising the Nose Gear  The entire Process of Capturing the Nose Wheel is completed after approx. 15 Seconds  Now the Operator can move and maneu- ver the Aircraft effortless safely and quickly 8
