Tanis Aircraft Products has released its video “Just Plug It In” highlighting the safety benefits of helicopter preheat.
The video describes the functions and features of the company’s helicopter preheat systems. Tanis preheat technology allows an operator to preheat critical driveline components and fluid reservoirs prior to flight.
“Just Plug It In” was released at the 2011 International Helicopter Safety Symposium and is available on YouTube
The two-minute video identifies wintertime hazards affecting the safe operation of rotary wing aircraft relating to fluids, critical driveline components and battery efficiency. With the installation of a Tanis preheat system, the video message concludes, helicopter operators can optimize launch times and minimize safety worries concerning critical in-flight components and fluids.
Operators in cold climates have known for years that preheating is a winter season best practice and is mandated by both engine manufacturers and certain government jurisdictions, Tanis officials note. Selecting a proper preheat system enhances operational safety, saves on operational costs, and enhances scheduling by decreasing downtime during winter operations, they add.
