The AERO Specialties JetGo 800AL-RJ 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 800AL-RJ features a turbocharged 4 cylinder Kubota diesel engine with 800 amp continuous performance at 28V DC and a 2300+ amp starting capability. The hybrid battery system features 4 batteries with absorbent glass mat technology, allowing for improved reliability and reduced maintenance, even at low temperatures. The JetGo’s lightweight and compact size leads to easy portability, whether 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 as well as aircraft engine starting needs.

The model 800AL-RJ is mission-built for the support of all Regional Airline Turboprop and 28.5V DC Jet airframes. This unit performs all support functions, including gate support and aircraft starting – even on the toughest applications (such as ATR, Q400, and SAAB airframes). The model 800AL-RJ unit complies with performance standards established by regional airframe manufacturers including ISO 6858, addressing minimum voltage and amperage standards.

JetGo GPUs have been specifically designed to meet the increasing demand in the aviation industry for a quieter yet powerful “green” ground power unit. With an EPA Tier 4i rating for low-emission nonroad diesel engines, JetGo GPUs meet all current air quality emission standards.  Its brilliant design, from both a functional and aesthetic standpoint, promises to set a new standard for 28V DC ground power units. The 800AL-RJ’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 to become self-sufficient in external aircraft ground power and service – all without breaking the bank!

The JetGo 800AL-RJ boasts a heavy-duty RJ1 galvanized rust-proof trailer and integrated cable tray.
