LEKTRO, producer of battery-powered aircraft tugs, is responding to the interests of Very Light Jet (VLJ) customers by re-introducing the AP8350 tug to the market. The product release, which is scheduled for next month, will mark this tug’s availability for the first time in nearly 4 years.

The AP8350 stands out for its small size, power, and quality. Features it incorporates include a traction motor coupled directly to a highly efficient helical gear Dana differential, the nose-lifting universal cradle, and an ultra-smooth state-of-the-art electronic system. Optional features include a custom paint job, an on-board GPU, and more.

LEKTRO tugs are made reliably with exciting technology that delivers a multitude of unique features. The electric systems used in LEKTRO tugs eliminate difficult engine starts in cold weather and emit no pollution. Quality steel materials are used to construct each tug for optimal reliability over many years of use. The build and setup of these tugs make for versatility that other tugs cannot offer.


LEKTRO, Inc is a family-owned business based on the premise that hard work and quality materials combine to produce stellar results. Building on the foundation of innovation begun by the late Wilt Paulson in 1945, Wilt and Violet's son Eric has shepherded the company to world-wide reach and continuous expansion into new and more challenging marketplaces.
