The TUG Model TMD-270 air start unit represents our 270 ppm variant of our family of air
start units. Designed from a clean sheet of paper, these units offer lower operating costs and
decreased environmental impact. The TMD-270 unit will handle the engine starting needs of
all wide-bodied aircraft engines requiring 270 ppm of continuous airflow with the exception of
the B-777.
One of the many standard features of the TMD-270 Air Start unit is the dual-pressure
regulators with an “On-Demand” automatic engine throttle control system. The operator
simply selects either the air start or the air packs mode and the control system automatically
adjusts the pressure and throttle settings. Benefits of the “On-Demand ” system include fuel
economy, decreased maintenance, and noise control.
Safety, reliability, and maintainability are key ingredients of our design; decades of
experience with both commercial and military GSE provide practical and efficient products.
Standard features such as large access doors, remote lube oil drains, and maintenance-free
batteries ensure ease of service. These exceptional features, combined with our famous
worldwide parts and support make the TMD-270 air start unit the best choice for your
