TLD is a group totally dedicated to the design, assembly, distribution and after-sales support of aviation Ground Support Equipment (GSE), with a history of more than 60 years in the industry.
The GSE industry’s move towards electric powered equipment has intensified greatly within the last year with airport and country initiatives being a contributing factor. Thanks to an innovative TLD design, the 838-reGen electric 7-ton loader has now become the most popular battery-powered loader in the world.
For years, ground handling has focussed on addressing aircraft GSE collision damage. With the latest generations of aircraft fuselage, this is becoming a critical risk that has been recognized and addressed with new regulations to impose higher safety standards in order to eliminate any future collision damage risk, namely: AHM 910/913/920/931/932 (IATA) and ARP 1558 (SAE).
Green, clean and energy efficient have driven our engineering efforts for years at TLD, and the industry continues to invest and innovate in that field.
The iBS system was designed to be compatible with all current and future TLD electric GSE.
