ITW GSE was very pleased to welcome Mr Roman Spilka, Ground Support Equipment Manager, from Czech Airlines Handling to our factory in Palmetto, Florida, USA to conduct a Factory Acceptance Test on their newly purchased Houchin 4400 GPU. Mr Spilka was very impressed with the size of our facility, how clean and efficient it was.
Following previous trials of the 4400 unit in Prague, Mr Spilka said: “we have had the opportunity to test the new Houchin 4400 Ground Power Unit for a few weeks. This unique Ground Power Unit features a compact design, full-size performance, which allows better mobility around aircraft, and it is easily handled. The new polyethylene canopy is corrosion free and much less heavy than the steel one, which we have on the Houchin C690 GPUs. The 4400 GPU is fuel efficient as it uses approximately 20% less of fuel than the current one. New control system gives us full information about the errors and its performance”
