Light aircraft, perhaps surprisingly, can be maneuvered on the ground with relatively little difficulty. The key is to tow the aircraft without doing damage to the aircraft or yourself. For this reason, propeller manufacturers warn against pulling an aircraft around by its propeller. However, if an aircraft has struts, it's fine to move the aircraft around by those. That said, if you have to steer the aircraft in one direction or another, simply pulling or pushing it won’t work. This is where the tow bar comes into play. In this blog, we will cover tow bars and their uses.
