Presentation of two sets of Free Winch Plans!

Aero-tow is in crisis with many older tugs being taken out of service.  A typical tug is over 50 years old.  Almost anybody one speaks to has a story of an old tug sitting in the weeds because the cost of making it airworthy is prohibitive. At one time, every tow operator had a “spare” tug available but not anymore.  This is evident in how difficult it has become to find a fleet of tugs for national contests.

 Winches are an inexpensive alternative for many, but progress is slow.  Could free winch plans be an answer?
