Tanis Aircraft Products Promotes Helicopter Safety With “Just Plug It In” Video On The Benefits Of Helicopter Preheat

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINNESOTA, FEBRUARY 7, 2012 - Tanis Aircraft Products announced today the successful release of its video “Just Plug It In” highlighting the safety benefits of helicopter preheat. Tanis is the technology and innovation leader in aircraft preheat systems, including state-of-the-art systems designed specifically for rotary wing aircraft.

The video “Just Plug It In” describes the functionality and features of the company’s helicopter preheat systems. Tanis preheat technology allows an operator to preheat critical driveline components and fluid reservoirs prior to flight. “Just Plug It In” was released at the 2011 International Helicopter Safety Symposium. It is available on YouTube under the full title Tanis - Helicopter Preheat - Just Plug It In, at the following address http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPwI_A7yUE0.

The short two-minute video identifies wintertime hazards affecting the safe operation of rotary wing aircraft relating to fluids, critical driveline components and battery efficiency. Tanis advocates the use of preheat systems prior to engine start to ensure a safer, more predictable winter launch with all gauges in the green. With the installation of a Tanis preheat system, the video message concludes, helicopter operators can optimize launch times and minimize safety worries concerning critical in-flight components and fluids.

Operators in cold climates have known for years that preheating is a winter season best practice and is mandated by both engine manufacturers and certain government jurisdictions. Selecting a proper preheat system enhances operational safety, saves on operational costs, and enhances scheduling by decreasing downtime during winter operations.


For over 37 years, Tanis has been the technology and innovation leader in aircraft preheat systems. Tanis supports the aviation industry with technology and products that make winter flying safer.
