Electric taxi specialist WheelTug has appointed design partner Scott Perkins as its chief engineer.

Perkins is the owner of Seattle-based engineering consultancy Endeavor Analysis, which has been involved in the design of WheelTug’s electric nose landing gear drive system.

Despite Perkins appointment to the Gibraltar-based electric taxi supplier, WheelTug says that Endeavor Analysis’s engineering team will continue to be involved in the drive system’s development.
