The Cessna 177, also known as the Cardinal, is a single-engine, high-wing light utility aircraft designed and manufactured by Cessna. It was developed as a successor to the 172 Skyhawk, incorporating a modern and advanced design. One crucial aspect of the design was to enhance cockpit visibility, particularly during turns. Upon the unveiling of the initial model, the Cessna 177 in 1967, it became apparent that the aircraft was not adequately optimized and was underpowered. Responding swiftly, Cessna introduced an improved variant, the Cessna 177A. Production concluded in 1978, with over 4,000 Cessna 177s built.
Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power equipment tailored for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, perfectly aligned with the requirements of the Cessna 177.
This includes the 701D tug, and the RBPS25 continuous power unit. The RBPS25 is ideal for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, or continuous powering of equipment during operations, without depleting the onboard aircraft batteries. Additionally, the RB25A is available for starting the aircraft, effectively preventing hot starts. We also offer a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the Cessna 177 in our TC3000 range.
