The Swearingen Merlin (now known as the Fairchild Aerospace Merlin) is a pressurized business aircraft, introduced in the late 1960s. The Merlin was initially produced by Swearingen Aircraft, followed by Fairchild Aircraft. The original development begun when Ed Swearingen started gradually modifying a Beechcraft Twin Bonanza and Queen Air, in order to compose a new design, designating the innovated hybrid the Excalibur. He soon started works on a new aircraft, which utilised a clean-sheet fuselage with modified horizontal tails and wet wing derived from the Queen Air, and the landing gear of the Twin Bonanza, which became the pressurized SA26 Merlin. The SA226-AT Merlin IV was developed from a previous variant, the Metro, and was marketed as a corporate business aircraft with seats for up to 21 passengers, powered by Honeywell TPE331-3U-303G engines.
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 Fairchild Merlin IV aircraft.
This includes the popular RBI9400T mechanic hand trolley case complete with 161 BAHCO tools, the 747C tug, and the RBSC300 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 Twin RB75A for starting the aircraft, helping to avoid hot starts. We also offer a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the Fairchild Merlin IV aircraft in our TC3000 range.
