I have an R44 Raven II that is based in Boston. While the helicopter is stored in a hangar, the hangar is not heated. In the winter the hangar is frequently down into the low 20’s F and it can be difficult to start at times, never mind the potential for excess wear and tear. I thought about a Tanis, but then came upon the Alien Turbo heater. I thought this would be a perfect solution with a quilted cover from Bruce’s as I could keep the entire engine and the drive train warm and avoid the issues with uneven heating of the engine. Last winter it worked out perfectly. I just place the heater inside the rear cowling and set it at 70 degrees. The entire back end of the helicopter (including the fuel) stays warm. Engine starts just like it does in the spring time. I highly recommend this solution.
The staff couldn't have been any nicer at Aerotherm. I had a trip ’Up North’ coming up and needed the heater ASAP for my new SR22. They were able to arrange second day air for a reasonable price and it arrived in time for my trip the next day!
As owner of a small SEP aircraft based in Switzerland, I recently bought an Alien X Turbo system. Friendly talks and rapid support from the manufacturer. Once bought, the device was sent rapidly and securely to Europe.
No need for any electrical plug adapter; the Alien stands "ready to use". Very simple and quick installation of the Alien on the aircraft (tutorial videos are of great help). It simply works! Your engine won’t ever keep cold again!
Received the heater today. Its 19* out, let it rip for an hour and shot a laser thermometer at the engine block. 90*. Kickass product and i’ll be pimping you out to COPA.
I want to let you know that the unit is working great. It warmed my dead, cold engine and oil to 80 F in about 2 hours when the air was about 12 degrees. Now I can fly on all those cold, clear days.
