The FAA has granted Southern Aviation Parts and Services certification to install Aviation Clean Air’s (ACA’s) Ionization System on Gulfstream G450, GV, G550, G650 and G650ER types. The system is designed to proactively improve cabin air quality, kill pathogens and remove odors throughout an environmental control system (ECS).
ACA says its patent-pending system uses a natural purification process that produces no harmful ozone or chemicals and requires no scheduled maintenance or replacement of filters, as it is not a filter system.
“Anyone who flies is well aware of the many germs, allergens and pathogens that are present in the interior of an aircraft,” said Tom Davis, sales director for ACA. “The ACA system removes the pathogens and also improves air quality by eliminating annoying, offensive and noxious odors.”
ACA has Parts Manufacturer Authority (PMA) for the system and holds Approved Supplier status from Gulfstream. ACA components have already been installed on foreign and USA-registered Gulfstream, Boeing and Airbus aircraft. Work is in progress on other aircraft types.
