eJP-3 & eJP-3L Towbarless Aircraft Tug

Product Id Sku:eJP-3 & eJP-3L

The eJP-3 & eJP-3L towbarless aircraft tugs have been designed to provide one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to move aircraft. Originally designed for individual aircraft owners and corporate flight departments the JP30 has grown in popularity and is now in use by many FBOs. Building an easy to operate and effective towbarless tug saves our customers valuable hangar space, time, and money.


The eJP-3 Series are Tronair’s smallest eco-friendly towbarless tractors. Powered by a DC motor, the two speed transaxle puts power to the ground without the use of chains, couplings or belts. The built in GPU assists with starting your aircraft and the built in battery charger facilitates a quick turnaround between flights. The eJP-3 Series vehicles are designed to sagely and efficiently move piston aircraft up to light corporate jets in all weather conditions.

The eJP-3 Series incorporates regenerative braking for controlled deceleration. This function prevents unnecessarily joining the aircraft, potentially damaging avionic equipment, and avoids excessive loading on the nose landing gear. The 3L variant comes with a dual deep cycle battery pack offering extended use and more clearance for airplanes requiring additional length to capture. The automatic parking brake always engages upon stopping to maintain overall safety during operation.

Eagle has been manufacturing the industry’s most reliable and functional tow tractors for 50 years and now produces the eJP line of towbarless tractors. Designed and manufactured in the United States, the eJP-3 series is backed by factory direct service and support. With a robust product line and the strongest warranty in the industry, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of quality and customer service.
