PlanSkate – Keeping the runway always open.
“The PlaneSkate is a uniquely designed tool engineered to quickly and safely move disabled aircraft. This tool is versatile and simple to use allowing us to recover a wide variety of aircraft. It is a valuable tool for our operation.” - Charlie R. Beuning. Minneapolis International Airport Metropolitan Airports Commission
The (3rd Generation) 10K PlaneSkate is the fastest and safest way of clearing a disabled aircraft with a flat tire from a hard surface runway, taxiway, or ramp without having to go through the time consuming process of jacking, removing and replacing the tire, brake assembly, or even mess with wheel fairings. The 10K PlaneSkate reduces unnecessary runway closure time and takes only minutes to load and clear. This saves lost runway time making your airport and the traffic pattern safer faster.
The 10K PlaneSkate is made of quarter inch solid steel plates with eight (8) 1500 lbs. heavy-duty casters (6,000 lbs. per landing gear leg), making this durable platform capable of moving most aircraft with a gross weight of 10,000 lbs. and less.
