Fairchild Metro

The Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner, formerly known as Swearingen Metro, is a pressurized, twin-turboprop airliner. Originating in the late 1960s, the original Swearingen Metroliner emerged through the gradual modification of existing Beechcraft business jets, namely the Twin Bonanza and Queen Air. These modifications involved extending the fuselage to accommodate a more comfortable cabin, along with the addition of horizontal tails and a vertical fin. The aircraft found widespread use in military operations, offering various configurations tailored for each specific role.

Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power and support equipment for this aircraft, encompassing tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, perfectly suited to the requirements of the Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner aircraft.

This offering includes the 717 tug, the RBSC300 continuous power unit—ideal for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, or continuously powering equipment during operations without depleting the onboard aircraft batteries. Additionally, the Twin RB75A is available for starting the aircraft, aiding in the prevention of hot starts. Our TC3000 range further provides a combination of start and continuous power in a single unit specifically designed for the Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner aircraft.
