Aircraft Fire Extinguishers, Smoke Hoods
One thing is for sure: regular household extinguishers are not suitable for aviation use. A water or carbon dioxide agent can damage your avionics, corrode the airframe, or create unsafe conditions in the cockpit. For that reason, we recommend very specific types of fire extinguishers for general aviation pilots—halon or halotron.
