Safran subsidiary Microturbo’s new e-APU60 auxiliary power unit received FAA certification, the company announced today. It received EASA approval in May last year. The APU, which has already been selected for the AgustaWestland AW189, is designed to “meet the demands of new-generation more-electric aircraft,” according to Microturbo. In addition to ground starting the main engines, supplying power to the electrical systems and providing air conditioning for the AW189, the e-APU60 can restart the engines in flight and provides an additional source of power required to cover all electrical needs throughout the flight envelope.
