That (JetGo) GPU you guys sent us is working great. Used it three times yesterday, everyone seems happy, and it is crazy easy to use. Appreciate the help with that.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Matt and Brad from AERO Specialties allowing us here at Wilson Air Center to borrow our loaner Hobart KVA for an additional period of time even after our purchased TLD KVA unit was delivered. We could not have handled Volkswagen’s charters of 4 Airbus 319’s and 3 B-757’s here in Chattanooga without AERO Specialties’ generosity. With that being said, we could not be happier with the equipment we have purchased from Brad, which was all utilized during the VW event.

We utilize JetGo Diesel Hybrid GPUs throughout our system in support of our fleet of ATR42-300′s, ATR72-200′s and Dornier 328-300 jets. With winter temperatures in Manitoba averaging -20°F and extremes down to -60°F, we put our JetGo GPUs to the test. They have been dependable performers, and we are very happy with them.

The verdict is in Derek. The field loves this unit (TLD GPU-28-CUP). Feedback from Brian and his team is very positive and they don’t even want to use the Hobart they just got repaired!!
– Blake Jackson, Procurement Specialist III, Sierra Nevada Corporation
Overall everyone here could not say enough about the performance and how quiet the TLD GPU is, even the pilots. Can’t wait to get ours.Thanks again! (TLD 28-CUP GPU)

Just wanted to let you know that our Jetgos are amazing, the best thing we could have ever bought. Simple to use, almost idiot proof to operate and we were able to make a nice little operating manual using your YouTube video for our ground staff.

The JetGo GPU arrived in good shape and was put into use this afternoon. VERY impressive performance.
We had a busy day with the Presidential TFR. Lots of quick turns with Pilatus PC-12s and they all start really fast and unplug almost immediately. The only experience we have with GPUs is the Jet-Ex 4G, the JetGo is in another league. We logged 6 hours with it today!
Derek – we love those marshalling wands! Thanks again!
– Dan DeMeo, Rabbit Aviation
I attest that the JetGo 28eco is a great product for a reasonable cost! Runs A/C on ground great. Thanks.
– Dee Winston, Embraer Phenom 300
Derek, thanks for your voice message a couple of a days ago. Yes we received the first two JetGo units, with accessories and the two Red Boxes yesterday. Everything looks good. Looking forward to receiving the last two JetGo’s in February. You have a good product with the JetGo’s and it’s always nice doing business with you guys. Keep up the good work and best of luck for 2014!

Received the TLD GPU yesterday AM. It was placed in service today (about 7 hours ago). Still running on the same plane and same tank of gas! I’m impressed. (TLD 4060T-CUP-28 60 kVA AC + 28V DC)

Wanted to pass along some info on the results of using the orange JetGo 550Mti GPU when handling our Pilatus PC-12. In short, it is the best unit I have ever used, it’s both Quiet, and powerful. Of course it handled the 130 amp load on the ground while I was running the A/C. But the start was quite impressive. The guys recorded 1000 amp load on the start. In the cockpit, on a battery start I’ll typically see a 7-9 volt drop, about a 10 sec spool up before I introduce fuel, and then another 15 or so seconds to reach ground idle. But with the JetGo 550Mti GPU I only had a 2-3 volt drop; I was able to introduce fuel within 5 seconds and ground idle within 10 seconds, total. Not to mention it was a much cooler start as well. Given we are a single battery aircraft, these features are all the more beneficial. Thanks for the great product.

Unit worked good for us on our recent deployment to San Jose, CA. The principal advantage is, in comparison to a diesel unit, there is no lag when we press start on our airplane due to the fact that the plane does not draw power from diesel motor/generator and torque is pick up directly from battery power. Also voltage drop was way less than diesel unit. This is a big plus for us as the airplane draw almost 1300 amps peak on start.
Thanks so much for the professional delivery, mechanical state of the unit and customer service

Hi Derek. I just wanted to let you know that we love the JetGo! Thanks for your great service!
– Jim Brown, Springfield/Branson National Airport
Matt – Thanks for all the help. The GPU seems to be working correctly now. I hope you, and your family enjoy the upcoming holidays. I want to again thank you for the great service you provide on all our needs. Thanks.
– John Harrison, General Manager, Landmark Aviation LFT
The team loves the TLD GPU. They are not yet used to the quiet sound of the units, but they are getting used to it!!!!! The feedback that I have for you is: “absolutely perfect.” The wait was well worth it.
– Kenneth Hinkle, Augusta Regional Airport Aviation Services
We are very pleased with the performance of the Eagle Tug and it is a great benefit to our operation. With the Eagle Tug and the JetGo GPU we have two very efficient pieces of equipment which have greatly improved our customer service and safety on the ramp. Brad Streeter has been a pleasure to work with and I greatly appreciate the products and support that AERO Specialties offers. I look forward to working with you guys more in the future.
– Paul Aiken, Operations Manager, Atlantic Aviation JZI
I installed the new generator (on the JetGo) and it is working perfectly. Also, I installed the fuel filter conversion and I love it. I noticed such an increase in performance that I shot off an email to our entire company (all GMs and all mechanics) letting them know that if they have the paper filters they should buy the conversion kit you guys have. Dan has been very helpful in providing me with all the necessary info. That email went to about 150 people in all the Atlantic Aviation community.
Thank you again for all your help, You, Curtis, and Dan made this a pleasant experience.

I am writing this testimonial to recognize Rod Gray and Aero Specialties. Rod has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I met him a few months ago as he popped into our Signature FLL location one day. He approached me to tell me a little about himself and Aero Specialties. He offered our location the opportunity to demo his equipment. About six weeks later, the equipment arrived.
Rod left us with two JetGo diesel Hybrid GPU’s and Eagle Mtt-5 electric Tugs. We were amazed and quite pleased with the operating simplicity that the JetGo Hybrid GPU’s offered. The GPU’s require the push of just 1 button to power up or down and you’re in business, it doesn’t get easier than that. I was also quite amazed that the GPU’s will provide 25 amps of power to an aircraft for up to 9 hours without the use of an engine.
Lastly, we found 100% pure electricity Eagle electric aircraft tugs truly remarkable. It is such a smooth and comfortable ride. We ran it from 100% battery without charging it and got 6 straight “running” hours out of it before it required a charge. It wasn’t actually charged for several days, the 6 hours is purely operating time. We were also impressed with that and how quickly the SVS opportunity charger recharges the unit. The turning radius is fantastic! The Tug can do “figure 8’s” within a 4 foot circle, it turns on an absolute dime. Another impressive feature we found quite helpful to better efficiently do our job was the “Inch Mode” feature. Rather than wasting time trying to line-up your Tug to the tow bar and inch it up manually, there is a switch that safely allows you to pull the Tug right to the tow bar and hook-up yourself without actually driving the Tug. It’s really safe and neat, you really need to see it.
We at Signature FLL were extremely impressed with the products that Aero Specialties designed and manufactured. During our three week demonstration period, not one person on our staff could find anything to complain about. Thank you very much for the opportunity to experiment your equipment, we were extremely impressed!
