Plane Power Partners, Ltd. announces the availability of its latest FAA-PMA approved lightweight alternator kit. The newest alternator, the AL24-FS60, is approved for installation on most 360 and 540 series Lycoming engines on 28 volt Cessna 172 and 182 aircraft with multigroove belt/pulley drive systems.

The newest Plane-Power alternator provides owners of recent era (1996-current) Cessna 172R, 172S and 182S, 182T & T182T aircraft a vastly improved source of electrical power for their Lycoming engine-powered aircraft. The Plane-Power AL24-FS60 alternator runs cooler, produces more output, offers significantly higher reliability and produces cleaner, more consistent power than heavyweight and often rebuilt OE alternators.

The Plane-Power AL24-FS60 is capable of producing in excess of 70 amps continuously and replaces the OE Ford, 60 amp alternator in Cessna aircraft with multigroove, belt-driven alternators. The FAA PMA permits use of all 70 Amps of output if the aircraft electrical system is suitably modified to take advantage of the additional output the Plane-Power unit can provide.
