Canadian pilots of piston aircraft can now reduce warm-up time, save fuel and fly safer in the coldest weather. The preheat system produced by Tanis Aircraft Products, when used properly, will add to operational efficiency, utility, safety of flight, and reduce the problems of engine wear associated with cold starts.
Tanis Aircraft Products manufactures the only preheat system that applies heat directly to all of the cylinder heads, oil sump and crankcase. The Tanis preheat system is powered by ground power and is not used in flight. Mounted on the aircraft, it weighs less than 2 pounds (0.91 kg). The installation kit comes complete with required cabling, circuit protection, and shore power plug.
