Plane Power Introduces Fly Safe Alternator

For those who like the idea of a redundant power source, Plane Power has announced the Fly Safe, a 30-amp, less-than-6-pound alternator designed to plug into a standard vacuum pad. It's available with an internal regulator, panel-mounted warning light and automatic dimmer for $795, or the price is $695 without the internal regulator and monitor panel. Plane Power is offering a $100 discount on these units through the end of 2010. For those who want this capability in their type-certified airplane, Plane Power will begin the certification process for the Fly Safe alternator in the fall of 2010.
