The best way to use an engine preheat system is to plug it in 10 to 12 hours before a flight. But driving to the airport to plug in the preheater costs time and money. Some pilots avoid that by letting the preheater run continuously between flights, but this wastes electricity ($20 to $70 per month depending on the system).
The new remote control from Reiff solves those issues by using the cell phone network to give you wireless remote control of your preheat system by calling or texting it from any phone.
It also quickly pays for itself, at a price far less than other options —only $189, or $89 if purchased with a preheat system priced over $400, according to company officials.
For more information see the web site. It will also be demonstrated at Reiff's booth at AirVenture, Hangar A, #1144 [ home ]
