A $600 solution to a $25,000 problem
Installed air conditioners can cost a lot of money and add weight to your aircraft all year. This portable unit provides impressive cooling and can be left in the hangar when not in use. Arctic Air works by blowing ambient air across a coil cooled by ice water. The cool air is blown into the cockpit providing a comfortable air temperature even in the hot summer sun. Simply place Arctic Air in the plane, fill it up with ice and plug it in to the cigarette lighter. Hours of comfort will follow.

Features:
• No installation
• High and low settings
• Cools over three hours on low
• High can change the temperature as much as 35 degrees
• Fan will not interfere with the radio
• Totally portable
• Does not pull power from the engine
• No STCs required
• Does not add humidity to the air

Included drainage tube allows you to leave Arctic Air in the plane and pump the water out on to the ground. Included flexible tubing aim the cool air where it is most needed. Available in 12 and 24 volt models and designed to run off the voltage from the cigarette lighter. Most aircraft put out 12V from the cigarette lighter plug; consult your POH to find the appropriate voltage for your aircraft.

Pros: easy to drain water after use with drain hose does fit nicely behind passangers seats in a 182 with some room for luggage Cons: plug in cord is too short. be sure to buy extensoin cord offerd or you will have cord running down middle of plane and getting in the way! overall so far it has worked pretty well does go thru ice pretty fast but I found blocks of ice seem to hold up for about 3-4 hours of cooling in 90 degree weather very happy so far just be prepared to use alot of ice!
