Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common form of industrial poisoning in the United States, yet many pilots overlook the threat it poses. According to the FAA, between 1967 and 1993, carbon monoxide poisoning contributed to at least 360 deaths in aircraft crashes.
It’s no wonder why. CO is colorless, tasteless, and odorless. It could be in your cockpit and you wouldn’t even know unless you had a quality detector like the ones we sell at Pilot Mall. These critical pieces of equipment have a big job to do, yet they are small enough to fit inside your pocket.
