JetGo 550Mti 28V DC Diesel Aircraft Ground Power Unit (GPU)
What is the JetGo 550Mti?
The JetGo 550Mti is a diesel-electric hybrid ground power unit for powering aircraft with 28.5V DC requirements. The lightweight and extremely portable 550Mti provides 550 amps continuous power for avionics, maintenance, and air conditioning on the ramp along with providing up to 2300 amps max for starting.
These units are great for corporate flight operations, FBOs, military, regional airlines, and aircraft Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facilities.

You Ask. We Help. Your FAQs.
Will leaving the JetGo outside in the hot sun hurt the unit?
The only harm from the sun would be the fading of the orange casing. If it is intense sunlight, you can use marine wax that will help protect the casing from any fading.
