Congratulations, you just purchased or have owned for some time, one of the most successful designs in aviation history. The problem is in the heat of the summer it’s sweltering waiting as you find yourself #3 for departure and it’s 102 degrees on the tarmac. For most pilots, air conditioning is a creature comfort, with the vast majority of the GA fleet not having this as an option, Kelly Aerospace decided to change that.
Now STC’d for Cessna 172, 182T, T182T, 182S, and 206. Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems provide an all-electric solution to the summer heat that we all hate.
This system has zero effect on engine performance and keeps you cool and refreshed as you fly about for enjoyment or travel for work. Our system was designed to be fully electric and not affect the performance of your aircraft whatsoever.
To receive a free quote or schedule and time to see one of our systems in person, call Walter Dodge at 334-224-0313.
Walter is our personal Renaissance man and is the VP of Operations for our Thermal Division.
For most aircraft owners in General Aviation, your beloved aircraft is not equipped with an Air Conditioning System. Most often, the problem of adding extra weight exceeds the desire for creature comfort. The Kelly Aerospace Thermal System solves the weight issue at an affordable price with their complete electric system.
Kelly Thermal System’s THERMACOOL All-Electric Air Conditioning technology is pending FAA Certification for the Baron 55 series aircraft. There is no need to wait for the STC as field approvals are available today. field approval is now available. The highly reliable and efficient 28 volt brushless DC motor /compressor which runs on either a ground power supply or the aircraft electrical system provides a 20° F.+ drop in cabin temperature within 5 minutes.
Ground pre-cooling with GPU
20° plus temp drop in 5 minutes
No take-off, landing, or in-flight restrictions
No impact on cruising speeds
Easy-read digital temp/fan control – set it and forget it
Full use of the baggage area
Very efficient cooling – only 45 amps
Lightweight – only 52 lbs. installed
Reliable and efficient hermetically-sealed, brushless DC compressor – R134A
Digital Temperature controller is easy to use. Set the desired temperature and forget it. Freeze protection is built in! The controller has an LED screen, a three-speed fan, and fits nicely into your panel.
Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems has received STC certification for its All-Electric Air Conditioning System for the Mooney R, S, TN, U, and V models. The Electric System offers freedom from flight restrictions and introduces Ground Cooling to the General Aviation Market. You can now call ahead and have your aircraft “Pre-Cooled” without unlocking the cabin.
This 65-pound system is completely installed in the aft section of the fuselage and has a factory look. The cool air is introduced to the cabin from the overhead for more complete cooling. The system has no scoops, therefore, no airspeed penalties so this incredibly fast airplane is still just as fast.
A digital controller allows for carefree operation of the system while managing your flight. The system is only available for 28-volt aircraft for now.
The receipt of the STC was formally announced at the Mooney Summit in Panama City Beach in September 2019.
