This week at the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA) Ag Aviation Expo Convention in Reno, Nevada, Air Tractor is displaying a new tail wheel lock for its airplanes. The new wheel lock is installed on the AT-802A located in Air Tractor booth number 401.
According to Air Tractor, the 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.
