Plane Pull

The 2018 Plane Pull presented by Credit Suisse will take place on April 28 at the UPS Tarmac at RDU International Airport.

What’s a Plane Pull?

The Plane Pull® is also a unique team building activity for groups.  It requires participants to come together as a team to achieve a very daunting task — pull an airplane 25 feet! Five-person teams will compete to see who can pull a 30,000-pound plane the fastest!  Participants must be at least 14 years old to compete. Each five-person team must raise a minimum of $800 total by April 28th.

To schedule your team’s plane pulling time or any further questions, call (919) 741-3617 or email Ruth Lee .

Teams who would like their Plane Pull team name printed on this years event t-shirt please email by April 16, 2018!
