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 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. Power cord 7 1/2' long.

Pros: fits fine, for use in an R-44. Good use for ballast if you need to add weight in your aircraft. Cons: Worked for about 20 minutes in the afternoon heat. Was looking for something to keep me cool while flying. It does not work in a helicopter...No block ice available in central florida. Great idea! May work in an airplane but does not work in a heli. No one sells block ice anymore. At least not in central florida. So telling people to use it depends on their location.
