Self propelled Combined Electric/Air Start Unit, VANE

The Self Propelled Combined Electric/Air Start Unit, model VANE 204/90/2.500 is a self propelled versatile vehicle specially designed to provide pneumatic power and electric current to most military aircraft and to all types of civil aircraft in operation today (except i.e. B-777 and A380, which can be started using two units in parallel), maximizing reliability, flexibility, operation, and maintainability required for military and civil applications.

The unit provides the simultaneous supply of electric current (90 KVA’s 400 Hz AC) and pneumatic power (204 ppm@ 56 psia) to the aircraft.

From an operational point of view, as the unit is self propelled there is no need of auxiliary towing equipment, and the pneumatic and electric supply can be activated by one single operator.
