2000th Startstick GPU Delivered

Unit Weights Range From 10 To 20 Pounds

Aviation Battery Systems (ABS) is crowing about a major milestone for their StartStick line of portable ground power units (GPU).

The company has reportedly delivered some 2,000 of its StartStick GPUs. With weights ranging just 10 to 20 pounds and a compact form factor, StartStick GPU’s allow for remote starts, database/avionics updates and compressor washes are all easily accomplished with StartStick.

The delivery in August to longtime client PJ Helicopters of northern California confirms that more than two thousand StartStick units are now in operation. Mike Underwood, Owner/General Manager at Texas-based SVT Aviation Maintenance, recommends StartStick for a variety of reasons.

“The biggest benefits are of course the size and weight making the unit portable even in a small helicopter,” says Underwood.  “Of course, those benefits translate into having portable power anywhere you go in the event of a battery failure, or for everyday use during starts.”

With a standard GPU/NATO power port connector, Startstick handles a range of aircraft. The company’s newest offering, the 20 amp-hour StartStick 20 model, allows ease of field and ramp operations as well as maximum aircraft applicability.

Fixed base operators (FBO) and fixed wing owners often rely on heavy, non-portable wheeled GPU’s, slowing operations and restricting flights to fields where this support is available. A growing number of customers also report extending their main batteries’ service life thanks to the discipline of using StartStick for their first start each day.
