Cessna Citation interior

Textron Aviation has launched its Aviation Clean Air (ACA) Cabin Ionisation system retrofit for select Beechcraft and Cessna customers.

This system is approved for installation at Textron Aviation Service Centers on the Cessna Citation Latitude best-selling midsize jet, Citation Sovereign series and Citation Excel/XLS/XLS+ series midsize jets, as well as the Beechcraft King Air 300-series aircraft with continued development planned for other Textron Aviation aircraft models.

“In today’s world, cabin air quality has never been more important. The ACA System enhances the capabilities of the interior environmental control system, providing an in-flight experience that’s offers peace of mind,” said Brian Rohloff, Senior Vice President, Customer Service. “We are offering this to Beechcraft and Cessna customers as an aftermarket option to provide them the reassurance of a neutralised and purified cabin.”

Using an indication panel for easy operation, the ACA Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionisation (NPBI) System is installed in the aircraft’s environmental control system. It emits cold plasma which allows positive and negative ions to attach to water vapour molecules in the air, causing a molecular reaction that neutralises gases, spores, viruses and bacteria. According to ACA, tests have proven effective against several bacteria, spores, odours, static electricity and viruses, including COVID-19.

The ACA NPBI System takes effect within minutes and is designed to constantly decontaminate the cabin’s interior including the air and surfaces.
