TOTAL AIR GROUP WINS WHEELTUG CONTRACT

Memphis, Tennessee, 28 April 2015. Total Air Group, LLC, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with WheelTug plc to develop and be the exclusive worldwide supplier of the racks and trays for the forthcoming WheelTug® E-Taxi system. The WheelTug system uses high-performance electric motors, installed in the nose gear wheels of an aircraft, to provide full mobility while on the ground, without the use of the aircraft's jet engines or tugs for both pushback and taxi operations.

"When Total Air Group first encountered the WheelTug concept, we were amazed by the opportunities to help streamline airline operations and reduce wear and tear on aircraft and engines, said Michael Silvius, TAG's CEO. "We have been enthusiastically working with WheelTug for several years now, and are delighted to have acquired a formal relationship and role in the project. We look forward to leveraging our expertise in aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul work to design and produce the racks and trays for the WheelTug avionics suite."

"I am delighted that TAG has formally joined our team," noted Isaiah Cox, WheelTug's CEO. "Their in-depth, hands-on knowledge of commercial aircraft, as well as their 'can-do' attitude toward problem solving has already proven invaluable to the WheelTug development effort."
