Our APU stands are manufactured by Honeywell with Honeywell Data Plates. These stands are usually more expensive to acquire but are often required when working on an APU that is under warranty. The main difference between OEM stands and regular stands is that their structural integrity and design are rigorously tested by the OEM APU manufacturer to ensure that no accidents occur during daily operations, and there is no risk of damage to an APU.
Certain Certified APU stands are subject to longer lead times due to fewer APU stand manufacturers having obtained a seal of approval from the APU makers. An aircraft APU can cost anywhere from hundreds of thousands of dollars, therefore ensuring their safety at any given time is of the most importance. Even the smallest damage to an APU can cost airlines, MROs, lessors, or traders not only huge sums of money required for repairs but also costly delays. To avoid that, we advise to use only high-quality certified Honeywell APU stands for all you Honeywell APU’s with all required inspections and checks completed, that can ensure the safety of such a valuable asset as your APU.
