The Cessna 177, also known as the Cardinal, is a single-engine, high-wing light utility aircraft, designed and produced by Cessna. The Cessna 177 was developed with the intention to create a successor for the 172 Skyhawk, with a modern and advanced design. One important aspect was to improve visibility from the cockpit, especially when it comes to taking turn with the aircraft. Once the first model Cessna 177 was revealed in 1967, it became evident that the aircraft is not optimised adequately, and hence was underpowered. Cessna was quick to release an improved variant, the Cessna 177A. Productions have ended in 1978, with over 4,000 Cessna 177s built.
Red Box is pleased to offer a great range of ground power equipment for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units, aviation tools, and more, which are perfectly suited to the requirements of the Cessna 177 aircraft.
This includes the popular RBI9400T mechanic hand trolley case complete with 161 BAHCO tools, the 701D tug, and the RBPS25 continuous power unit, which is ideal for diagnostic work, pre flight checks or for continuous powering of equipment during operations, without draining the onboard aircraft batteries and the RB25A for starting the aircraft, helping to avoid hot starts. We also offer a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the Cessna 177 in our TC3000 range.
