Aircraft Heaters represent the most safe and reliable aircraft engine preheater and cabin heaters ever developed. These heaters are designed to safely heat your engine in environments that are considered to be dangerous locations. The Hornet Heater line uses the most advanced, self-temperature regulating, semi-conducting material developed. The Hornet Heaters are equipped with two or four of every single operational component:
These Heaters are made in the United States.
Designed as if your life depended on it - because the life of your engine may.
Works as advertised. I was sceptical that it would fit without removing the cowl on my Archer II but it does. I cover the cowl with a moving blanket and with temps down around freezing outside My engine seems to spin up and start just like its summer. so far Im very happy with it.
After 48 hours behind the prop of my PA-28 161, the engine compartment was 73 degrees. Sides of the cylinders were at 64 degrees. Didnt check CHT. Firewall was at 58 degrees. OAT 28 degrees, 35-38 degrees through the hangar. Unfortunately, I didnt have time to start up, hopefully this weekend Ill get to try it ahead of a flight.
I use the hornet engine heater in conjunction with a Bruce’s Custom insulated cowl cover on my Just Aircraft SuperStol in my hangar....Buying the cabin heater to protect my “inside” investment. Wonderful products worth every penny.
I use it in the engine bay of my self-launch Sailplane when hangared. Perfect length cord from wing tip wall to engine bay for this 18 meter glider. it does not get too hot.
Excellent cockpit heater for cold seasons!
Brought my engine up to normal starting temps in just over 24 hours. It works great, is very easy to use, and can be taken on trips. Set it and forget it. Very pleased.
Used it this past winter. Did an excellent job keeping my plane ready to go. No issues leaving it plugged in while the plane was not in use. Two notes. It is not a rapid heater but one designed to be left in. It will turn off and on once it reaches temperature. I highly recommend it.
works exactly as their literature states.
Have used for couple weeks, so far works awesome
Per the supplier: at 12v, it is 16 amps in rush, 10 while running. At 24v, it is 12 amps in rush and 5 while running.
Per the supplier: The BTU output for the Hornet2 - 2 Fan is about 350 BTUs.
The amp draw would be about 8 amps. The temperature out would be 50 delta T. Which means whatever the temperature would be in the cabin it will blow out 50 degrees hotter.
The typical amp draw is 8 to 10 amps. Supplier recommends installing a 20 amp breaker and sizing the wire for 20 amps.
P/N# 08-12221 is a dual voltage meter. It may be used on either 120V or 220V.
No, the photo is for reference to show two sides of the unit. These are priced and sold each.
These are not aircraft specific but that would would work for a Husky.
