The True Blue Power division of Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics unveiled a new 250-Watt inverter at the Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention and Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn., this week. Mid-Continent is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, as well as the recent FAA and EASA certification of the True Blue Power division’s new TB17 lithium-ion main-ship battery.

The new TI250 DC-to-AC inverter runs on 28-VDC input and delivers 250 Watts of 115-VAC power for plug-in devices, such as laptop computers, smartphones, tablets and special-missions equipment. The inverter weighs 2.2 pounds and can be installed in the cabin or cockpit. No fan is needed to cool the TI250, which includes a built-in ground fault interrupter. True Blue Power also manufactures inverters in other sizes, including 10, 500 and 1,200 Watts.

Mid-Continent now employs 200 people at its two locations, in Wichita and Van Nuys, Calif. In addition to manufacturing more than 20,000 units per year, the company also overhauls/exchanges and repairs more than 15,000 units per year, including gyros, altimeters, HSIs and autopilots.

“Growing and sustaining a successful business, especially in the highly competitive and challenging aviation industry, is not for the faint of heart,” said Todd Winter, Mid-Continent president and CEO. “To do so for half a century requires exceptionally efficient and dedicated employees that have an unrelenting commitment to their customers and fellow aviators.

Founded in Wichita, Kan., in 1964, Mid-Continent added a manufacturting facility in Van Nuys, Calif., in 1991.
