In 1974, Cessna initiated the development of an extended alternative to its original Citation I. The initial design for the new Citation III (Model 650) incorporated three Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D engines; however, in 1976, a redesigned version was announced at the Fall NBAA convention. This updated design involved replacing the inadequate three-engine configuration with 2 Garrett TFE 731-3B powerplants, alongside a specific cockpit and T-tail.
Red Box is delighted to offer an extensive range of ground power equipment tailored for this aircraft, encompassing tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, all meticulously designed to meet the specific requirements of the Cessna Citation III 650 aircraft.
The 747C gas-powered tug swiftly and efficiently moves aircraft up to 35,500 lbs, making it an ideal choice for this model. Meanwhile, the RBSC225 continuous power unit delivers 225A at 14/28V DC. This compact, lightweight, and highly portable power unit has been engineered to provide continuous high-quality DC power for various applications, including crew training, and aircraft servicing in workshops, on the ramp, or in the field. It is particularly well-suited for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, charging the onboard battery, or continuous powering of equipment during operations, all without draining the onboard aircraft batteries.
