Piper Pawnee Tugplane

The club has two Pawnee tugs. These ex-crop dusters are used around the world for glider towing due to their high power-to-weight ratio and ability to land in paddocks for aerotow retrieves. While many of our glider pilots can also fly the tugs, we have many "power only" pilots who tow for us. Being a tug pilot is certainly fun and a great way to build up your hours and experience with free flying. If you are interested in becoming a tug pilot, please contact us.
