Now all Canadian pilots of piston aircraft can now reduce warm-up time, save fuel and fly safer in the coldest weather.

Tanis Aircraft Products is proud to announce the receipt of formal acceptance by Transport Canada for the Supplemental Type Certificate on both the 4 and 6 cylinders Continental, Lycoming, and Franklin engines.  The STC will be entered in the Canadian index of STC’s that have been familiarized or accepted by Transport Canada for installation on Canadian Type Certified / Accepted Aeronautical Products.

The preheat system produced by Tanis Aircraft Products when used properly, will add to operational efficiency, utility, safety of flight and reduce the problems of engine wear associated with cold starts.
