What is an Aircraft Fuel Boost Pump?

An aircraft fuel boost pump, also known as an auxiliary electric pump, is responsible for delivering fuel to the aircraft engine before the engine starts. The aircraft fuel boost pump can also be used to supply fuel to the airplane engine if the engine driven or primary fuel pump fails.

Pulling your old pump and sending it in for overhaul at the first sign of leakage can save hundreds of dollars. Shelf and service life on all boost pumps is typically 10 years. Most of our Aircraft Fuel Boost Pump component overhauls have a 3–5 day lead time upon receipt in our facility. New pumps & motors are available both in stock and upon request.

Wondering what to expect when you trust Aircraft Accessories with your next fuel boost pump project? Our talented team of fuel boost pump specialists will gladly provide you with a custom quote on request. For general questions, or to request a free quote, call or message us today.
