Safomar Aviation is proud to announce its new partnership with Avion Power as a distributor for the company in South and Southern Africa. Avion Power develops and manufactures advanced battery systems for government, military, industrial, and commercial customers worldwide. Avion Power develops and manufactures advanced battery systems for government, military, industrial, and commercial customers worldwide. For three decades, Avion Power’s scientists and engineers have developed custom power sources optimized for specific applications. Product offerings have included high energy density batteries, high-power solutions, and wearable power sources. Avion Power has also developed hardware and software that maximizes the reliability and safety of power sources.
Avion Power, a manufacturer of high-power, light-weight battery systems, announces the official launch of the Voyager Aircraft Battery. Voyager is a 28V/20Ah power source designed to start aircraft engines and to provide auxiliary power. On a single charge, Voyager can start 10 or more turbine engines, power on-board electronics for an hour, or provide a combination of auxiliary power and starting power. Voyager weighs 15 pounds, can be stowed onboard an aircraft and recharged in-flight, and has an integrated NATO power connector, making the battery completely cordless.
“We’ve been making powerful, light-weight aircraft batteries for the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment for years and we’re excited to bring our Modular Battery System to the commercial aviation market,” said Trung Nguyen, Chief Battery Scientist for Avion Power. “The technology has been extensively tested, it’s combat proven at the highest level of helicopter aviation, and it outperforms lead-acid batteries in most scenarios.
Safomar is proud to once again associate itself with an innovative principal to bring the latest developments to the aviation market.
Phillips 66 Type M Aviation Oil is an ashless, nondispersant, multigrade engine oil recommended for use in aircraft piston engines where the operator prefers mineral-based engine oil that does not contain any dispersant additives. It provides easier starting and quicker oil circulation at low temperatures compared to single-grade mineral oils, while maintaining high-film strength for protection under high-temperature and high-load operations that can help reduce cylinder glazing tendencies. Type M Aviation Oil typically is used as break-in oil for newly overhauled engines where all-mineral type oils are recommended. Break-in normally is accomplished in less than 25 hours of engine operation.
Phillips 66 X/C® Aviation Oil is an ashless dispersant, multigrade engine oil specifically formulated for year-round use in aircraft piston engines. It provides distinct performance benefits compared to single-grade engine oils, including easier starting and faster oil circulation at low temperatures, reduced warm-up time and reduced oil consumption in most engines. It maintains its film strength under high loads and at high temperatures to protect against wear and piston scuffing. The ashless dispersant formulation helps minimize the formation of engine sludge, varnish, piston deposits and combustion chamber deposits. This results in a much cleaner engine compared to the use of straightmineral oils. X/C® Aviation Oil was the first FAA-approved mineral oil-based, ashless dispersant, multiviscosity aviation engine oil. It has provided outstanding, proven performance in a wide variety of aviation uses since its introduction in 1979, including flight schools, charter and cargo airlines, acrobatic aircraft, spray planes, race planes and virtually any other general aviation application. It is available throughout the United States and is exported to other countries around the world.
Phillips 66 Type A Aviation Oil is an ashless dispersant, singlegrade engine oil specially formulated for use in aircraft piston engines. The ashless dispersant formulation helps minimize the formation of engine sludge, varnish, piston deposits and combustion chamber deposits. This results in a much cleaner engine compared to the use of straight mineral oils. Type A Aviation Oil has many years of outstanding field performance in a wide variety of aviation applications. It is available in two grades, Type A 100AD (SAE 50) and Type A 120AD (SAE 60). Both grades are FAA approved.
• Ashless dispersant helps minimize engine sludge and varnish deposits for cleaner engine
• High-film strength for protection against wear and piston scuffing
• Protects against rust and corrosion
• Same high-quality base oils as used in Phillips 66 X/C® Aviation Oils.
