We supply aircraft tow tractors to suit airport environments anywhere in the world. Our tractors are doing a great job everywhere – including in hot climates, at high altitudes and in freezing temperatures.
Our tractors are designed with extreme weather and operating conditions in mind. From our baby F59 to our heavyweight F396, Schopf aircraft tow tractors support military and civil aviation all around the globe.
Continuous airport growth, high daily air-traffic volumes and increasing aircraft type variation are a constant challenge for logistics operations at today’s airports.
Goldhofer’s towbarless aircraft tractors are a big help – with safe, economical and particularly fast and flexible movement of the aircraft on the ground.
Our name is synonymous with leading technology made in Germany. Whatever your choice – Hybrid, PowerHybrid or Diesel – with Schopf transporters and tractors, you can be sure of having the most suitable and economical solution for almost every situation.
Customers from all over Europe place their trust in our products with their outstanding reputation for quality and reliability combined with low operating costs. When are you going to join them?
Every second counts: In an airport emergency there is no room for mistakes. For such eventualities, Goldhofer – in close collaboration with international recovery specialists – has developed ARTS (Aircraft Recovery Transport System) and in the process become the global technology leader in this market segment.
The rugged ARTS systems combine quality engineering with efficiency and flexibility. In an emergency, you can rely on a high-grade system tailored to your individual requirements.
