Protecting Against Fume Events
Air quality and health issues on-board an aircraft are self-evident to even a first-time traveller. Fume Events occur when engine oils or hydraulic fluids leak and become superheated. These fluids become gaseous and can enter the cabin environment via the bleed air system, causing toxic smoke and foul odours.
Regulatory Authorities report that fume events occur approximately once in every thousand flights, exposing over 2,000,000 passengers and aircrew annually to potentially dangerous fumes.
AIRMANAGER Aerospace Benefits

Protecting against Infectious Diseases
AIRMANAGER’s patented technology destroys ALL airborne viruses to Log 10 efficiency (99.99999999%) on a single pass. Aircraft cabins provide the perfect environment for the spread of infectious diseases: Passengers confined for long periods of time, breathing the same re-circulated air. The World Health Organisation has long identified airline travel as a major contributor to the global spread of infectious diseases such as SARS, TB and H1 N1.
“We always think of planes as a vehicle for spreading disease”
Dr. Doug Hardy, infectious disease specialist at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas
Active Air Treatment is the Future
Our patented Close Coupled Field Technology breaks down all airborne viruses and pathogens as they are passed through our Disruptive Electron Field, rendering them inert and harmless to passengers and crew. AIRMANAGER provides a level of protection unseen outside of an ISO5 level Clean Room environment.
Potential Fuel Save
Bleed Air costs money. It is expensive to divert engine power to bring in outside air and push it around the cabin. CCFT from AIRMANAGER allows improved re-circulation of cabin air, providing for a possible fuel saving for some operators. Initial trials in conjunction with BAE Systems Regional Aircraft division, first explored the potential for fuel savings successfully on regional aircraft.
We are now undergoing secondary trials on commercial airliners that suggest a significant fuel saving may be possible in both narrow body and wide body aircraft. Follow us on Twitter to be included on any updates.
