What do our customers say?
Got my Aerotherm heater a couple weeks ago and just in time. The weather here in upstate New York went into the lower twenties. I set up the heater on my Skylane and left it turned on overnight. I went back the next day expecting that the motor would be running continuously, but to my pleasant surprise it was not. I reached inside the cowl and could just feel the warmth and of course she started right off with no trouble. I am very pleased.
After doing a lot of research on aircraft engine heaters, I came to the conclusion that the AeroTherm heater was my best choice and the only unit that met all of my purchase criteria: effective, lightweight, portable and inexpensive. I had decided that I wanted an electric heater and, since I fly a variety of aircraft, I needed a unit that was not permanently installed. I like the fact that the AeroTherm re-circulates heated air throughout the engine compartment, ensuring that the entire engine is heated evenly, including the oil. And with three different temperature settings and a built in thermostat, I can tailor the heater output to my specific needs on any given day.
After researching many other options, I decided the Aerotherm was best for my setup in an unheated hanger. No installation. No change to W&B. Easy to stow for transport or warm weather. My RCS unit is on speed dial and my heater is presently hooked up to my SR-22 awaiting my call.
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!
"I'm very happy with my Aerotherm Ryan, easy to use and silent. Hook it up, do my walk around and prep and in half an hour, 45 minutes it starts like a Summer day. Preparation and proper procedures are so important with a Radial Engine. Living in Canada with colder winters I feel confident I'm doing one of the best things I can do for my ship."
