I could not have got a better heater than your Aerotherm heater. I live in Hamilton Montana and have an unheated hangar. I leave it on all winter and everytime I go out to fly I don't have to pre-heat because its already nice and warm. We had 10 below temperatures here in December and the airplane stayed completely warm. It works great on my Citabria and I can take it to my fly in ranch in the Selway Wilderness of Idaho and run it off the generator back there.
The Deuce works better than I ever imagined! I threw a couple of moving blankets on top, positioned the hoses into the cowls, careful not to obstruct the oil cooler, and left it plugged in to cycle on and off as needed. After a couple of days I noticed the heater only comes on maybe once every 5 minutes, and stays on no more than a minute at a time, maybe less. The engine is toasty warm. Thanks for such a great product.
I have come to find my Aerotherm to be indispensable. I travel the Midwestern US and Canada every day for business in my SR22-GTS and I must have the reliability and efficiency of the Aerotherm. I can use it anywhere, use it on any plane I’m flying, and even help friends or coworkers get their planes safely started regardless of conditions. Try that with a bolt on heater!
Absolutely delighted with my new Alien heater. Hooked it up last night and when we got to the hangar today the engine was warm as a summer day and it fired right off with no strain despite an unheated hangar and ambient temp of zero degrees F (-18C). Goes on and off the airplane in less than 20 seconds. Custom hoses fit perfectly. Excellent concept, design and execution! Great product; worth every penny in reduced engine wear and convenience. Thanks!
We’ve used the heaters 3-4 nights a week since we’ve gotten them. They allow us to leave the planes in the storage hangar regardless of the temperature. In the past we tried to get at least one plane into the heated maintenance hangar the night before a cold morning flight. This was always a complication and didn’t always work. Now, all we do is hang the heaters on the plane after the last flight and plug them in before we go home. The pressure carburetors on the Helio Couriers don’t like cold starts and it wasn’t unusual to have to pump the primer to keep them running initially on a cold morning. Now, we pull the plane out and turn the master on and see 70 – 80 degrees on the CHTs with the thermostat set at 70. The oil temps are 65 to 70. We will probably buy two more for the 206s before next winter. Thanks for a great product.
