Noisy Green Shed

Otherwise known as the Houchin...


Comprising a powerful diesel engine, coupled to an electric generator, this unit enables ground running of all aircraft systems, including engine starting.


We inherited this item when the previous owners upgraded to a new shiny replacement. It requires quite a bit of tinkering, fettling and servicing to get it to the point where we can use it on WR963. However, a couple of weeks ago, with new batteries, we did get it to start and run for the first time in ages. A good start, though I think there was more smoke output than electricity!
