MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Cessna and Piper aircraft owners will receive a $150 trade-in credit on legacy Chrysler and Ford alternators when they upgrade to a new-generation Plane-Power alternator for their Cessnas or Pipers.
“Ford alternators were used exclusively on single-engine Cessnas in the 1970s and early 1980s,” said Mike Disbrow, president of Hartzell Engine Technologies (HET). “In similar fashion, Piper installed the Chrysler alternators on their new singles during the same time.”
“The simple fact is these legacy automotive units were designed and manufactured over 30 years ago,” Disbrow said. “Instead of spending their money overhauling these antiquated alternators, owners can update to a new-generation FAA-PMA approved Plane-Power alternator that offers a number of advantages — including a $150 reward.”
Disbrow explained the new Plane-Power alternators for Cessnas and Pipers are smaller and lighter with dual fans and a longer-life brush design, which means these new alternators run cooler and last longer on the aircraft than any overhauled legacy unit.
“The new Plane-Power alternators come with a full, two-year factory warranty,” Disbrow said.
To qualify for the $150 trade-in credit, an aircraft owner needs to purchase the appropriate Plane-Power alternator conversion kit from their HET distributor and complete the online form at: www.PlanePower.com/GetCash.
Owners will also need to send a copy of the new invoice and their Chrysler or Ford alternator core to Hartzell Engine Technologies. The $150 trade-in credit promotion runs through March 31, 2017.
