While aircraft tugs make it a lot less physically demanding for you to move an aircraft, it still requires manual effort. You have to pull or push the plane to the desired location. Remote controlled aircraft tugs allow you to move and maneuver your aircraft by just pressing a few buttons. Most importantly, it gives you the freedom to walk around the airplane when it is being towed, enabling you to make sure that it will not come into contact with obstacles that are in its way. By moving your aircraft with a remote control, you do not need to walk back and forth or have another person stand behind the plane to check the stopping distance.
