A $600 solution to a $25,000 problem
Installed air conditioners can cost a lot of money and add weight to your aircraft all year. This portable unit provides impressive cooling and can be left in the hangar when not in use. Arctic Air works by blowing ambient air across a coil cooled by ice water. The cool air is blown into the cockpit providing a comfortable air temperature even in the hot summer sun. Simply place Arctic Air in the plane, fill it up with ice and plug it in to the cigarette lighter. Hours of comfort will follow.
