X-tra Power – New Sales Partnership
Jump starters for general aviation, business jets and helicopters.
We are happy about the new cooperation with X-TRA POWER.
X-TRA POWER GmbH was founded in Germany in 2003. They started with the production of a new model series of professional jump starters with 12V and 24V.
Since then, X-TRA POWER has grown steadily and has expanded its product range and sales area. The battery starters we sell have been specially developed for the requirements of aviation. Find out more about the models, their properties and possible uses on the product page.

NEW: One JetTrac for everything – the new JetCart from Via Guide
Via Guide has been ensuring orderly boarding with its JetTrac for years. Now they have taken on the topic of how to make walkboarding, i.e. passenger boarding, more efficient – more and more airlines are expecting shorter and more efficient handling. The new Via Guide JetCart has everything on board that is lying around on the apron for this purpose, sometimes this equipment has to be laboriously searched for or can be lost in the wind:
- Up to 10 chocks are sufficient for all types of aircraft
- 8 cones to secure all danger spots
- A FOD container for collecting flying rubbish
- Broom and shovel
- Optional: A grit container for oil binding agents or de-icing granulate in winter
- Optional: fire extinguisher for quick intervention
- And of course, two JetTrac belt rolls, each 25 meters long, to secure the walkways
Electric ground power units from Guinault
Battery-based ground power units are enjoying increasing popularity and are now standard equipment at many airports.
Guinault also offers powerful E-GPUs with special lithium-ion batteries.
You lower the noise level on the apron, have lower operating costs and can handle several aircraft one after the other – depending on the version.
The battery ground power units from Guinault are characterized by:
- 400Hz / 90kVA power on one, optionally also two outputs, optionally with 28Vd
- Depending on the version, up to 200kWh available
- SSpecial lithium-ion batteries offer more capacity than comparable batteries because they can be completely discharged (+ 20% capacity)
- Very quiet
- Very low running costs
- Very easy to use
Illuminated Runway Closure Marker
It’s hard to believe, but it happens again and again that planes land on closed runways. In order to clearly mark such runways and taxiways as blocked, WEYER has now developed a runway closure marker.
So far, only American models are available that do not meet German standards. WEYER has therefore started a development and has already carried out initial flight tests. LEDs in white and orange were installed for the various applications on runways and taxiways. The flashing lights were arranged at a special angle and can be seen from afar. The LEDs are controlled using a touchscreen remote control.
The closure marker is installed on a standard vehicle trailer. This allows a quick and uncomplicated use. This means that large tarpaulins no longer have to be rolled out in a labor-intensive manner.
Another prototype is currently being built for additional tests.

Hangar too small? Buy an aircraft tractor!
There is still space in the aircraft hangar – but the new aircraft is too big, doesn’t fit through the hall gate? There is a simple solution: The Flyer Truck FLT200RC – as a high loader. By lifting the nose wheel, the stern is lowered so that the aircraft can also fit through smaller hangar doors. But that is not the only advantage – the FLT200RC is a very universal tug, remotely controlled and therefore also very maneuverable, which is very useful in the hangar in order to be able to place aircrafts close together. The large wheels also allow driving over thresholds or bumps.
