Classic Aero-TV: Safety Tip of the Week - Skip Koss on Electrical Systems

Concorde Battery's Skip Koss Discusses System Safety

E-I-C Note: The Aero-TV Team -- Jim, Tom, Nathan, Paul, The 'Other' Jim, Ashley, Birgit, Wes, Klyde, Anjin, and the rest of the aero-gnomes -- want to wish you Happy Holidays while we all pursue our own various and sundry holiday diversions. Our regular daily webcasting schedule will resume promptly on Monday, January 3rd, 2011. In the meantime, please enjoy this 'classic' episode of Aero-TV from the past year as we all recover from our various and sundry Christmas/New Year's celebrations...

As a battery and electrical systems expert, Skip Koss has seen it all when it comes to the power that keeps today’s aircraft in the sky. Recently, however, Koss has grown concerned over the increase in aircraft that apparently consume power even when all systems appear to be off.

These "parasitic loads" can be considerable, draining the battery to the extent of even permanent damage. Koss joins Aero-TV in the second of his safety tips to explain how general aviation pilots can address this potentially dangerous problem.
