Engine Start Systems

Advanced starting technology

At Collins Aerospace, we offer engine start systems that include both electric- and air-start technologies. The engine start system type is determined by customer need and aircraft system architecture.

Air turbine starters convert pneumatic power, supplied by the APU and controlled by the starter control valve, into mechanical shaft horsepower to start the engine. These starters include the option for a shared-oil lube system to significantly extend maintenance intervals.
