Game Time for the Eagle eJP-12 Towbarless Vehicle

Tronair, Inc. (“Tronair”), a portfolio company of Golden Gate Capital is proud to announce the successful completion of equipment supporting the big game in Atlanta. It’s estimated that around 1 million people traveled to Atlanta for the game, which created the need to move roughly 700-900 aircraft. Tronair assisted our local FBO partners by donating ground support equipment including our new eJP-12 towbarless vehicle.

With such a high volume of aircraft, having proven and reliable equipment is critical to safety. Our own Patrick Caligiuri – Vehicle Sales Manager was part of the team providing support in Atlanta. This was his second year in a row supporting the game. Patrick stated, “It’s always impressive to see up close everything that goes into supporting such a big event like this. FBOs handle aircraft every day; but to do it at that large of a scale, it has to be carefully planned and well-supported. On behalf of the Tronair team, we were very happy to help out in any way we could.”

The eJP-12 is one of our newest vehicles and it performed very well with all of the aircraft. The eJP-12 is assembled at our state of the art facility in Swanton, Ohio by the trusted team at Eagle Tugs. It features Zero Degree Technology for industry leading turning capabilities. Operators are able to position aircraft more precisely as the motors independently turn to reduce the space required to maneuver. The eJP-12 is designed to safely and efficiently move regional and large cabin business jets in all weather conditions. In addition, Tronair also donated the JP100S towbarless tug and a number of assorted aircraft towbars for the event.
