The Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander stands as a light utility and regional airliner, meticulously designed and initially produced by Britten-Norman. The company aimed to address the growing demand for an economical, twin-piston-engine aircraft in the aviation market, specifically targeting the expanding commuter airline sector. Surveys highlighted a preference for aircraft with larger capacity over increased range or speed, prompting Britten-Norman to prioritize payload capacity over these aspects. The Islander continues to be one of the most successful aircraft in Europe, with over 700 Islanders still operational.
Red Box is delighted to offer a comprehensive range of ground power and support equipment for the Britten-Norman BN-2B-20 Islander aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, meticulously tailored to meet the specific requirements of the Islander.
Highlighted in our product lineup is the 709 tug, the RBPS50 continuous power unit, ideal for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, or continuous powering of equipment during operations without draining the onboard aircraft batteries, and the RB50A for starting the aircraft, aiding in avoiding hot starts. Additionally, we provide a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the Britten-Norman BN-2B-20 Islander aircraft in our TC3000 range.
