The Aerotherm engine heater is exactly what I needed for my Columbia 400. I turn the unit on and it heats all my cylinder heads to about 100F and the oil is kept at a nice 85F. It is easily installed when needed and its simplicity makes it a great addition on to my aircraft.
What do our customers say?
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 am a recreational pilot and have a RV-9 in an unheated hangar about 60 miles from my home. In 30 years of light plane ownership and experience with the full spectrum of engine warming techniques; bare light bulb, propane forced air, bolt-on heaters, floor mounted ceramic heaters, etc., I find the The AeroTherm Alien and RCS setup the best warmer available. I especially like the ability to control the unit remotely and use it only when I want to fly. There is no requirement for modifying anything under the cowl or having someone from the airport plug the unit in when I need it heated, or unplug it if I cancel.
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.
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!
