Following the prototype that was delivered earlier this summer, manufacturing is now well underway on the service trailers with the successful delivery of the initial two service trailers designed to meet the customer requirement.

The unique design of the wheel and brake change trailers offer the operator maximum flexibility and safety when transporting excessive aircraft wheel change equipment. The integration of independent rear suspension minimises shock and stress throughout the trailer chassis allowing for a smoother and more comfortable towing experience when transporting the payload capacity of 1.5 ton.

Marc Green, Sales Director for Newbow Aerospace said: “British Airways has been a long standing and loyal customer to Newbow Aerospace for more than 30 years. We have worked very closely with them to design and develop a wheel and brake change trailer that not only meets their operational expectations but offers flexibility, safety, performance and reliability.
 
“This current project demonstrates our capability within the GSE sector and allows us to further expand our product offering to the British flag carrier.”
