How Do Helicopters Get Moved On Ground?

In today's blog, we will look at several options on the market and how Heliwagon can help make things easier and more efficient.


A tow cart is a ground handling accessory for helicopters that supports the weight of the aircraft during take-off and landing. Typically made of sturdy steel or aluminum, it features adjustable arms that securely lift the helicopter and allow it to be easily transported across the tarmac. Tow carts are designed to increase safety, reduce operational downtime, and enable efficient aircraft handling at airports and helipads.


A dolly, also known as a landing and takeoff platform, is a device used in helicopter operations to facilitate safe landing and takeoff on uneven terrain. It consists of a reinforced metal frame fitted with wheels or skids, as well as hydraulic systems that can adjust the platform's height and tilt. The use of a dolly can reduce the risk of accidents and damage to both the helicopter and the landing surface.
