Cockpit heater
« on: November 18, 2005, 08:46:35 PM »
Greetings to all from St Louis,
I have a 2000 Canard Viggenite, (similar to a Vari-Viggen but built from aluminum).  I'd like to know what you guys use for heat in the cockpit, how you installed it, power source, etc.  I'm primarily looking for some type of electric heater I can install in the nose or between the tandem seats.  I know a lot of you live in sunny climates but it gets a bit cold here in Missouri. We fly year round as long as the runway/taxiways are clear.  Until I install a heater I won't be doing much winter flying.  Any thoughts?

Hi.  This was thoroughly discussed on Canard-Aviators@yahoogroups.com
You can subscribe and do a search (I understand that is possible but
frustrating - I have not tried it) or ask for copies of the recent, relevant
emails.    I will be glad to send you a couple.  

Or just email me at bruce@ywave.com   What I will send is information on someone else's Longeze.

I can't help with Electric, but I installed an oil heat system that rivals that of a car heater.

Take a peek at my web site, look under ARTICLES/OIL HEAT.

Hi, Oly.   I sent 3 good emails from others but your spam filter will not
let them through.    The way my computer is set up, it will be impossible
to communicate.   :(


 You can call me at 808-250-0939 and I will tell you where to get the essential information. :lol:

Bruce and all others,
My internet provider always uses the spamblocker until I put new e-mail addresses on file.  If you have suggestions about the heater, please respond on the forum or e-mail me and I will put you in the directory.
Thanks,
Oly
