As Sir Isaac Newton’s famous quotation goes from over 300 years ago. . . and is as relevant today as it was back then.
As the words of Will Chisholm, our Business Development Manager’s not so famous 2020 quote confirms,
In the Aerospace world, ‘What comes down, will mostly go up again’
Aircraft of any type require Ground Support Equipment (GSE) from departure to arrival for efficient turnaround times, saving time and revenue.
GSE is available in many forms, including Access, Refuelling, Push Back Tugs and Tractors, Towing, Belt Loaders, Ground Power Units (GPU) and Pre Conditioned Air Systems (PCA)
GPU and PCA Systems are available in mobile form and are seen often within the Airport Apron/Pan area as pictured in the images.
These employ the use of a mounted Genset that independently supplies power where required without local power supply restrictions.
