IndUS, Tanis Partner To Warm Chilly Light Sport Aircraft

Cold Weather Package Available On Variety Of LSA

The balmy climate and warm sun of Sebring, FL may seem an unusual place to introduce an airplane package better suited for much colder temperatures, but that didn't stop IndUS Aviation and Tanis Aircraft Products from announcing their partnership to warm the engines and cockpits of a variety of LSA.

"Light Sport Aircraft are not generally thought of as being cold weather aircraft," says Scott Severen, IndUS' Director of Marketing. "We're excited that an industry leader like Tanis selected our aircraft to introduce their expertise into the LSA market."

"Tanis is custom designing a system beyond just heating the oil sump," added Tanis president Bob Krueger. "To be really cold weather capable, pilot comfort, panel temperature and other items must be considered as well. Tanis is gathering temperature data at various points on the engine and airframe in flight and on the ground. This data will be used as a basis to measure performance for enhancements to the Thorpedo to add the ability for safe and reliable cold weather activity."

The goal was to provide optimum conditions throughout the entire airplane, from the power plant to the cockpit. Both companies say that thermal imaging provided dramatic proof of the system's success.

"The Thorpedo is the first LSA to undergo extensive in-house design, testing and calibration to develop a complete aircraft system," Krueger continued. The company even added an insulated prop and engine blanket for static protection and heat retention.

Thanks to the work on the IndUS Thorpedo LSA, the new Tanis complete aircraft preheat systems are now available for a wide variety of light sport aircraft, providing heat for engine and oil. Preheat is known to prolong engine life and conserve fuel.

An IndUS Thorpedo with the new Tanis preheating system are on display during the US Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, FL from January 22-25
