Cessna started developing the Cessna 421, also known as the Golden Eagle in 1967. The model came about as a pressurized version of the predecessing Cessna 411, and had become an instant success with over 200 aircrafts sold in the first year of production. In the following year the model was further refined with added fuel capacity and elongated fuselage, receiving the name Cessna 421A. By 1971 another variant was designed with larger baggage space in the nose and extended wingspan, allowing a 5,000 ft raise of service ceiling. This model had been designated the name Cessna 421B. The next model to follow was the Cessna 421C Golden Eagle, manufactured with upgraded landing gear, and wetwings in order to facilitate for fuel storage while eliminating the wingtip fuel tanks. More then 1,000 models were sold when productions were ceased in 1985.
Red Box is pleased to offer a great range of ground power and support equipment for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, which are perfectly suited to the requirements of the Cessna 421C Golden Eagle aircraft.
This includes the 709 tug, 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 421C Golden Eagle aircraft in our TC3000 range.
