The IAI Westwind, originally designated as the 1121 Jet Commander and produced by Aero Commander, evolved under the ownership of Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) in 1968. IAI made minor adjustments to the original design, resulting in the 1123 Westwind—the first variant featuring an elongated fuselage, double-slotted flaps, a redesigned horizontal stabilizer, and General Electric CJ610 engines. Subsequent to this, the 1124 Westwind emerged with improved performance due to upgraded engines and advanced avionics.
From 1980 onwards, the Westwind II succeeded its predecessor in production, incorporating updated elements, including a new wing centre-section. Red Box takes pride in offering a comprehensive selection of ground power and support equipment tailored to the specific needs of the IAI Westwind II aircraft. This range encompasses tugs, ground power units, start power units and more.
Among our offerings is the 747C gas-powered tug, and the RBSC150 continuous power unit. The RBSC150 is particularly well-suited for diagnostic tasks, pre-flight checks, or providing continuous power to equipment during operations without depleting the aircraft’s onboard batteries. Additionally, our RB75A is available for starting the aircraft, helping to prevent hot starts.
For the IAI Westwind II aircraft, we provide a versatile solution in our TC3000 range—a combination of start and continuous power in a single unit.
