While many associate aviation hazards with poor weather, mechanical failures, and unplanned encounters with terra firma, an equally perilous threat can be much more difficult to detect - even for experienced pilots: carbon monoxide. This stealthy gas is odorless, tasteless, colorless, and - if undetected - can even be fatal. Fortunately, the ASA Carbon Monoxide Detector is a low-cost, extremely reliable solution that helps aviators identify the presence of CO as soon as possible. With its adhesive backing, it's easy to affix to any aircraft instrument panel. Once opened, the unit's orange center spot will turn gray/black when carbon monoxide is present, alerting occupants and providing them with valuable time to take action. Sealed detectors have a 3-year shelf life and, once opened, last for 12 months. Also effective in automobiles, near machinery, and anywhere else fossil fuels are burned. An absolute lifesaver no pilot should ever fly without.
Gotta have one in the plane and Pilot Mall sells these for a dollar or so cheaper that everyone else!
ASA Carvon Monoxide Detector
This is a great product for anyone who works with equipment indoors. It is great to let t crew know if they are in an area of high levels of carbon monoxide and allow for them to get to fresh air. I highly recommend it for anyone working with equipment in an enclosed area.
