GoAir To Trial Electric Taxiing System

India-based GoAir has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Honeywell and Safran to support the advancement of the EGTS electric taxiing system. The system uses electric motors on the main landing gear to enable the aircraft to push back autonomously and taxi without using its main engines to improve operational efficiency and reduce emissions. Under the agreement, GoAir will provide data on its taxiing operations to Honeywell and Safran to assist in maturing the system and to define the precise fuel and other operational benefits it would see by using the technology across its fleets. GoAir will also assist in establishing the airline standard operational procedures for aircraft equipped with the system.
