Portable Small Plane Air Conditioner
From the website:
A $525 Solution to a $25,000 Problem
Installed air conditioners can cost a lot of money and add weight to your aircraft.
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.
Included drainage tube allows you to leave Arctic Air in the plane and pump the water out on to the ground.
Included flexible tubing aims cool air where it is most needed.
Available in 12 and 24 volt models and designed to run off the voltage from the cigarette lighter.
Most aircraft put out 12V from the cigarette lighter plug; consult your POH to find the appropriate voltage for your aircraft.
