The Nomad is a utility aircraft produced by the Government Aircraft Factories (GAF) from 1975. The Australian Army issued a requirement for a new aircraft in the mid-1960s, for which the firm proposed a single engine development. This was promptly turned down, as from combat experience a twin-engine variant would have been more suitable for this purpose, propelling GAF to re-design the aircraft. The finalised design featured STOL capabilities, compact Allison 250 engines and overall exceeded the military requirements. The first Nomads produced were purchased by the Australian Army, however further sales were not adequate, resulting in productions being 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, aviation tools, and more, which are perfectly suited to the requirements of the GAF Nomad aircraft.
This includes the popular RBI9400T mechanic hand trolley case complete with 161 BAHCO tools, the 709 tug, the ????? 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 RB50A for starting the aircraft, helping to avoid hot starts. We also offer a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the GAF Nomad aircrafts in our TC3000 range.
