Through innovative design, quality excellence, and total customer support, Air Comm Corp. is recognized as a leader in aircraft climate-control systems. Air Comm heaters and air conditioners provide outstanding performance from the 120-deg F deserts of the Arabian Peninsula to -40 deg F in the Canadian Arctic. In extreme environments, the company’s systems are often considered mission-essential equipment.

Air Comm’s customers include operators, service centers and manufacturers. Kits are shipped complete with all hardware for installation, detailed installation drawings, instructions, and Service and Flight Manual supplements.

Maintenance-Free Heater


In 1987, Air Comm developed a new concept in helicopter cabin-heating systems — the maintenance-free, Miniature Ejector Bleed Air Heater. For the first time, warm air was delivered directly where it was needed — at the feet of the helicopter crew and passengers, and at the base of the windshield for defogging, all while eliminating heavy, expensive, high-amp blowers and ducting.

Effective Cooling

Similarly, Air Comm has performed extensive research and testing to bring customers the most advanced, highest-performance air conditioners available. While all air conditioner manufacturers cite impressive BTU capacity, BTU output is less important than what the company calls "effective cooling." Simply put, this means putting the greatest airflow at the coldest temperature directly on the crewmembers or passengers. Air Comm’s research shows that conditioned air forced through long, convoluted ducts loses much of its velocity, and can gain more than 15 deg F between the evaporator and outlet, making evaporator BTU capacity a secondary consideration. This is why all Air Comm air conditioners feature dedicated cabin and cockpit evaporators. At least one dedicated evaporator is critical to effectively cool the cockpit "greenhouse." Adherence to this design philosophy is why Air Comm has dozens of satisfied customers in countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Uncompromising Quality

Air Comm prides itself on providing safe, reliable products that meet or exceed customer expectations. To achieve this, they maintain the highest caliber quality-control department. Air Comm’s systems are inspected at three different points during the manufacturing process to ensure completeness and accuracy. Moreover, Air Comm’s quality system is compliant to Mil-45208 and AS9100. Its quality-control personnel ensure that every system shipped is built to exacting standards and functionally tested before it leaves the facility.

Total Customer Support

Air Comm says its customer-service department is "unmatched in the industry in terms of the level of support we provide to our customers." Its personnel have traveled worldwide to provide training, installation, and technical support. Consignment spare-parts inventories for large fleet operators and online access to system service manuals are just a few of the benefits Air Comm’s service department provides for its customers.

Air Comm is dedicated to supporting its customers and providing the best possible products to the helicopter marketplace, products that enhance the value of the helicopter and the value of the flying experience. In any environment, Air Comm’s ruggedly designed, high-performance systems ensure optimal passenger comfort and crew performance.
