Tanis Aircraft Products Releases New Safety Video Tanis Aircraft Products announced the release of a new


video outlining the safety benefits of helicopter preheat. The new video highlights the functionality and features of the com- pany’s helicopter preheat systems. Tanis preheat technology allows an operator to preheat critical driveline components and fluid reservoirs prior to flight. The video was first presented at the International


Helicopter Safety Symposium (IHSS) in Fort Worth, Texas, on November 9th. Following the video presentation, a number of delegates took the time to express support for Tanis preheat technology. One cold climate operator commented, “I have Tanis preheat systems on all of my helicopters. For my fleet it is simply the best winter safety practice that money can buy.” Another participant opined, “I was not aware that such a sys- tem existed. We’ve tried portable heaters at our remote sites and they are cumbersome to transport and fickle to operate. The Tanis system looks like the real deal, transportable, reli- able and best of all safe.” The short two-minute video identifies wintertime hazards


affecting the safe operation of rotary wing aircraft relating to fluids, critical driveline components and battery efficiency. Tanis advocates the use of preheat systems prior to engine start to ensure a safer, more predictable winter launch with all gauges in the green. With the installation of a Tanis preheat system, the message concludes, helicopter operators can opti- mize launch times and minimize safety worries concerning critical in-flight components and fluids. Operators in cold climates have known for years that pre-


heating is a winter season best practice and is mandated by both engine manufacturers and certain government jurisdic- tions. Selecting a proper preheat system enhances operational safety and saves on operational costs, enhances scheduling and decreases downtime during winter operations. ◆
