How common are 400Hz supplies in aircraft?

I understand that 400Hz, 26Vrms power is found in a lot of aviation equipment. But how common is it? Is it in every plane and every instrument or is it restricted to certain sectors, like military, commercial, or private planes?

Is it used a lot in ground applications to power aviation equipment, like in a workshop/lab setting?

The reason I ask is that I'm trying to gauge interest in a small 400Hz, 26Vrms power supply for the benchtop (plug it into regular 60Hz 120V power). From what I can see, these are hard to find below a few thousand dollars.
