Thumbs up Aithre Shield CO Detector

While at Osh in the Innovation Pavilion, I had the pleasure of meeting Jim Rutler and Jessica Stephens from Aithre, a Tech company that specialise in monitoring your health in flight.

https://aithreaviation.com/

What was of interest to me was their new remote mounted CO Detector with a solid state fuel cell and a 10 year life with no calibration required !




It is a small device that you can use to monitor the CO levels in the cabin on your Dynon /G3x etc or your iPhone with the new app.

Installation is very simple with only 3 wires . You can download the app on your phone or contact Dynon etc for their widget so you can remote monitor the CO levels with your Dynon Alarms etc.



The resulting 3 ppm you can see is after the local flight school taxied paste my hangar in their 182 at the normal student full rich setting !

In climb the highest I have seen is 17 ppm with a quartering tailwind and once in cruise the reading drops to zero.
( I don't fully understand how the tailwind made a difference but climbing into a straight on headwind,the result is less than 5 ppm. )

If you had the app downloaded on your iPhone it records the trends so you can review after the flight.



I am very impressed with the product and have since had 3 of my friends order and install the same on their Dynons.
Jim was great to talk with and his website had prompt ordering and shipping to Australia.

Another great product for our aircraft !

ps: Jim's personal RV-10 is stunning !!!!!

I ordered one to put in a few weeks ago. What sold me were there YouTube vids. Vids were a little lacking in production quality but it was interesting to see how the traditional dots didn't respond to pretty high exposure.

Thanks for the info, I am very interested to see what it would take to connected to the G3X. I will see if I can get any info from their website which last time I visited, did not have much info.

I just installed the same unit in my G3X equipped RV7 for evaluation before I start offering it to customers. It's something I've been meaning to do anyway. So far so good and easy to install to the G3X which they have documented in the manual.

I placed an order today. Communication was great with a very fast and friendly response to questions. Looking forward to install it.

Default Aithre Video

Hey Lynn,

Thanks for the heads up on the video, I did not know there was one.

Jessica does a great job of showing how good their sensor is and how bad the old DOT Cards are.

Yeah, prior to watching them it was a little harder to justify the price tag, but afterwards not so hard of a sale. I also had sent them some questions and they were quick to respond. Specifically what happens after 10 years and they said it only had a 10 year rating because that was how far out it could test, so it could go longer without needing to be recalibrated or replaced.

Knowing Jim personally, he has put a lot of time and energy into this product. And in a sector that has woefully needed an updating.

Have one of the remote detectors installed in my RV-9A with Dynon Skyview.

If you ever get to talk to Jim in person, you'll quickly realize that it's more than just a product. He, and his team, want to truly educated pilots on the dangers of CO and just how blind we are to it using older technology.

HIGHLY recommend everyone take a look at Aithre.
