Air Start Unit

Air Start Unit (ASU) is a ground support equipment equipped with pneumatic starter is used to start aircraft engines. It supplies necessary quantity of air at specified pressure through one/two or three hoses attached to the aircraft’s under belly. We manufacture ASU’s of Towable Trailer mounted, Skid mounted and Self propelled systems. The popular product variants are 100 PPM, 120 PPM, 180 PPM, 250 PPM, 400 PPM ASU and many more…

Air Start Unit 180 PPM
Air Start Unit 180 PPM
Air Start Unit 270 PPM
Truck Mounted Air Start Unit

The air start unit 400 PPM started the “world’s largest aircraft engine” GE90-115B engine in 48 seconds, essentially equal to the standard on board 747 APU start performance. It is a very robust product that is superior to all other ground start carts available in the industry today.

Air+MAK ASUs come with a touch-screen control panel GSEM V8-A and AirMAK RDMS – A feature rich fleet management software which transmits live operational data to a remote computer/mobile and alerts users in real-time of faults, alerts. With this software users can plan maintenance schedules, ad-hoc service records, order spare parts… and much more.
