At the National Agricultural Aviation Association Ag Aviation Expo Convention in Reno, Nevada, Air Tractor displayed a new tail wheel lock for its airplanes. The tail wheel lock was installed on an AT-802A ag plane to provide trade show attendees an up-close view of the lock mechanism.
According to Air Tractor, the new tail wheel lock can be retrofit onto all models of Air Tractor airplanes. It is a bolt-on, direct replacement for existing wheel locks. A positive locking mechanism prevents loss of the adjustment point. Tail wheel alignment adjustment does not require special tools or jacking the airplane tail wheel off the ground. The locking mechanism is easily inspected and cleaned by removing the top cover.
