AERO Specialties JetGo 550Mti 28.5V DC diesel-electric hybrid aircraft ground power unit (GPU) provides impressive continuous and peak power in addition to offering advanced aircraft protection systems. The JetGo ground power unit’s light weight and compact size leads to easy portability, whether it’s across the ramp or around the world. These GPUs provide a sophisticated ground power solution for aircraft avionics and maintenance support, electrical, air and environmental systems in the hanger as well as aircraft engine starting needs.

The JetGo GPUs have been specifically designed to meet the increasing demand in the aviation industry for a quieter yet powerful “green” ground power unit. Its brilliant design, from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint promises to set a new standard for 28V DC ground power units. The 550Mti's amazingly compact size, peak power, aircraft protection features, operator safety and ease of use have made this truly a one-of-a-kind unit. Already a popular unit with military installations, FBOs, MROs and regional airlines; these ground power units have also become a hit with corporate aircraft operators and flight departments who appreciate the ability of becoming self-sufficient in external aircraft ground power and service – all without breaking the bank!

The JetGo 550Mti is also available as the 550Mti-RJ, which boasts a heavy-duty RJ1 galvanized rust-proof trailer and integrated cable tray.
