King Aviation Praetor 600

Customer Review – King Aviation, Las Vegas USA

Cash Traylor, Director of Aviation I am writing to express my appreciation for the extra mile that Start-Pac, and your engineer “Jim,” went in solving the GPU requirements of our flight department. We recently acquired an Embraer Praetor 500, and rapidly became aware of Embraer’s voltage sensitivities. We wanted a solution for in-hangar support (running the APU indoors is frowned upon) for servicing the avionics in this “flying computer.” We had a unique requirement, we wanted a portable (light weight) GPU that could supply the required power. We only needed about 150 amps continuous, however the aircraft has a surge of over 350 amps for a short time while the nicads top up and stabilize. Unlike many other aircraft, there is no way to (easily) leave some systems off during power-up (no avionics switch). During power up the voltage must not go above 29.5 while “unloaded” and not drop below […]

Eve Storm from START PAC USA

Modern luxury – Interview with START PAC CEO Eve Storm

As the president of START PAC, a manufacturer of battery start packs and ground power units for aircraft, Eve Storm is proud to carry on the legacy that her parents began 25 years ago. On the (high) heels of announcing a new international and domestic scholarship program, the multi-talented industry leader sheds light on her impressive background and her commitment to being the best. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE AVIATION AND AEROSPACE INDUSTRY? My mother, Judith Wurth, and stepfather, James Wurth, created the company 25 years ago when he got stranded in the Arizona desert in his helicopter with a dead battery. I was in graduate school working on my doctorate in clinical psychology when I was diagnosed with cancer and started helping with the accounting during recovery. It was then that I realized I wanted to finish my master’s degree but really wanted to work full time […]

Ground Power for Medevac Air Rescue

Medevac Air Rescue – Mobile Ground Power Units

Time and tide wait for no one, as we all know too well, and in the field of emergency medicine no truer words have been spoken; every single minute is vital and often, even a matter of seconds can mean the difference between a person being saved and the devastation of a life cut short. Medical emergencies are a race against time Being up against the clock is routine for Medevac teams.  High-speed evacuation, safe transportation and medical expertise are areas in which these highly trained and compassionate professionals excel.  Not only do they have to locate and access injured or sick individuals in remote or difficult to reach landing sites, they also need to stabilize them, providing quality emergency care from the first instant that they come into contact, often many miles away from the nearest hospital.  It’s also true however, that Medevac is called upon in places that […]
