Air Start Adapter – Excellence Aviation

Are you aware of the Risks of operating a Global Express without a Air Start Adaptor or Huffer connection?

Most Global Express operators and crews are aware of the risk they are taking by not carrying an adaptor that will ensure Ground Air connections in case of APU faults away from base.

Yet how many under estimate the real cost to the owner/passenger of the aircraft and what any associated delay will cost them financially, emotionally, physically simply because the aircraft didn’t have access to the correct Air Start Adapter. This situation is now quite unnecessary when you have a simple piece of portable equipment which we now manufacture and sell. 

Due to the cost and size of OEM adaptor that is a much needed tool when you have an APU failure, Excellence decided to design and have manufactured a more light weight, easier to store and use adaptor for our customers and here it is….[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

9 Reasons Why You Need The Excellence EXC 9000 Air Start Adapter

 1)      When the APU quits you need to start your engines from an external air start cart. APU failure is the start of a missed trip, this can be cause by many components for the APU. No start equals NoGo and unhappy passengers.

2)      We estimate that 50% of all worldwide air start carts will not fit a Global Express. Many of the air start machines found around the world are catering for the airline market. These tend to have very large connectors that will not fit the Global Express. Even if you do find yourself at an airport with Start machine, it may not fit. Our air start adapter will fit.

3)      How much does a missed trip cost? Your CEO or passenger will now have to charter or miss their meeting if no air start adaptor is available to ensure the start machine will connect to Global Express. A missed trip or business meeting could cost a lot of money.

4)      How upset is the passenger if the trip is missed? What impact on his business? Whether social or business, a missed trip can be very upsetting and costly for both passenger and crews.

5)      How long is the aircraft not available for use, you need to fix the APU to get going. Waiting for engineers to travel and then troubleshoot, then get the parts is costing more than the cost of our Excellence EXC 9000 Air Start Adaptor and a lot of time especially if away from support facilities.

6)      The Excellence Air Start Adaptor will overcome these issues. Having this Air Start Adaptor with you at all times will ensure your dispatch is not delayed due to APU issues.

7)      The Adaptor is small and fits inside the rear equipment bay storage box. This adaptor is lightweight, small and easily located in the standard aft equipment tool box ,keeping it safe and secure.

8)      It’s your best insurance to keep to your schedule when your APU quits. Cheapest possible insurance to avioid missed trips due to APU start issues.

9)      Least cost investment. Not taking cost of inconvenience and schedule changes into account, our Excellence EXC 9000 Air Start Adapter will avoid costly charter’s or scheduled flights.
