AERO “Summer Edition” on July 14 – 17, 2021
The Messe Friedrichshafen has postponed the trade fair from the original date in April to July. We support this procedure and will attend the AERO as exhibitor. You will find us in the gliding hall.
After the cancellation of the last year’s show, we are more than happy to meet you all again in Friedrichshafen.
Take care and stay safe!
Tost Anniversary 75 years
Our company was founded 75 years ago.
Truly a reason to celebrate, but Corona has also thrown all our plans overboard.
From the smallest of beginnings, our family has built up an aviation business over 4 generations, supplying aviators with take-off equipment on the one hand, and aircraft manufacturers worldwide with our OEM products on the other:
Wheels, brake systems, aircraft tyres, tow releases, tow cable retractor winches and components for helicopter rescue operations.
As a certified EASA manufacturing and maintenance company, Tost is synonymous with reliability and top quality.
Next year we will hopefully all meet again at our worldwide unique aviation trade fair AERO 2021 in Friedrichshafen.
We are very much looking forward to it

Retrofit kit to disk brake for LS4 with EASA approval
When you modify your LS glider to the hydraulic brake system, the 4“ drum brake wheel is exchanged against the 4” disk brake wheel Classic 110-20. The torque plate assembly has been redesigned and is now CNC milled from solid aluminum. The existing axle can be used further on. The Bowden cable at the rudders is replaced by the new PTC master cylinder. It is very well harmonized with the BZT brake assembly. The glider won’t go onto the nose so fast when you make a full stop.
This retrofit can easily be performed in any Gliding club’s workshop.
The following LS gliders can be retrofitted with the EASA Minor Change Approval:
LS3, LS4, LS6, LS7, LS8
- Clear increase of the brake force
- The braking can be modulated very well
- Low amount of work for great result
- No modification of center of gravity
- No need of adjusting the brake
Extent of delivery:

Vehicle Tow is the topic of the season for glider pilots. Known from former times, it is an alternative way of getting up into the air without tug or winch.
You just need a car and the Vehicle Tow Device from Tost.
The Vehicle tow device from Tost plays an important role in this briliant video from VW as connection between the Amarok and the Antares. Also the blue towing cable “Dynalaunch” is from Tost.
