Single handling of a G109 is awesome. I can get the plane out of the hangar - but getting it back is mission impossible, given my class and weight.

A smart battery powered hangar trolley could be the answer to my prayers.

We have very skilled craftsmen in our Danish G109 group, so given we have a sketch and some component specs, we could easily build one.

Any solutions and experiences available in this global forum, that we could pick up on?

PS - thank you for very valuable feed back on MOGAS: it seems perfectly safe to run on 96 or higher EU standard octane (93+ US standard) super unleaded - alcohol or no alcohol, as long as the fuel is fresh. If super unleaded MOGAS keeps the sharks of the Hawaiians, it will also keep the herrings of the Danes.

Please go to the grob-pilots web site and you will see a dolley that makes handling the aircrafty a one person operation and a BIG saving in hanger space.

We do have the same issue here in my club. Can't get the 109b back into the hangar without help ....

Any good idea about an electrical hangar dolly (and feasible attachment location), which works without derigging of the aircraft?

Kind regards, Hilmar

G'Day Hilmar,
I have a solar/battery powered boat winch that tows my 109 back into the
hanger. The tailwheel travels in a track made from steel angles and the cable
attaches to the tailwheel. I have a pendant that controls the winch on a long
lead that is kept near the front door. Works great.

Ray,

thank you. But I am thinking more on a “non fixed” installation. There are electrical trolleys available for Cessna’s, Piper’s, etc. Such device would be great, we only don’t now, where to fix it on a tail wheel aircraft ;).
