Design Specification for Towbarless Tow Vehicles
The tow vehicle should be designed for towbarless movement of aircraft on the ground. The design will ensure that the unit will safely secure the aircraft nose landing gear within the coupling system for any operational mode.
Five-year review. Removed specific aircraft references. Aircraft categories revised to cover new aircraft types (i.e., A380, A350, B787, A340-500/600, and B747-8). Clarification of requirements. TLTV options added. JAA name change to EASA. Minor editorial changes.
