      Something New is In the Air

      The Latest Air Filters for Post-COVID Flights

      It’s no secret that COVID-19 changed the way we travel, forever. Airplane powerhouses are more aware than ever of the need for more advanced cabin air filtration, seeing as hundreds of people are breathing the same, recycled oxygen for hours on end. With serious concerns about the coronavirus spreading throughout cabin air, the European Aviation Safety Association (EASA) recently published a safety guidance bulletin. Here are three suggestions every mechanic needs to know:

      #1: Industrial-Grade HEPA Filters

      High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters can be installed in aircrafts, but recirculation fans should “never be stopped”. These circulate cabin air in its entirety in about 2-4 minutes, capturing a minimum of 99.7% of airborne pathogens.

      #2: Avoiding Blocked Vents

      This is crucial when it comes to maximizing air flow and preventing the spread of contamination. It’s recommended that recirculation and fresh air systems be operated to exchange the entire cabin’s air volume ahead of time before passengers board.

      #3: Ending Recirculation Entirely

      While it sounds extreme, if a plane’s re-circulation system doesn’t contribute towards critical functionality in-flight, then the potential to keep SARS-Cov-2 particles stagnant will prevent them from being captured by the aircraft’s filtration system.

      Catching a flight is clearly no longer as simple as, well, catching a flight. Aircraft mechanics have their work cut out for them more than ever before. If you’re one of them, don’t make another move without our short-sleeve coverall. With comfort and breathability guaranteed, you can get the job done with confidence.

      Save Lives. Sanitize: How to Keep Your Environment Sterile During COVID Times

      The novel coronavirus has changed the way we live and work forever, but with a few workplace adjustments, you can continue to stay safe, slow the spread of infection, and help flatten the curve.

      #1: Keep Washing Hands

      Hand-washing is one of the most powerful ways to kill virus molecules, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. You can also sanitize, but the CDC recommends using an alcohol-based sanitizer with 60-95% alcohol. Hand-washing is, however, favored.

      #2: Cough and Sneeze Into Your Elbow

      Encourage others around you to never cough or sneeze into their hands. This action, followed by touching shared surfaces, is one of the main ways in which the virus is spread.

      #3: Keep Workstations Clean

      Regular sanitization of high touch-point surfaces, like countertops, doorknobs, and remote controls, can kill the virus and help keep workers safe. However, it’s crucial to use cleaning agents with labels that state that the product is able to kill 99.9% of known viruses.

      How are you keeping your work environment clean and germ-free during COVID times? We, and our community, welcome your thoughts, and would love to learn more about how to curb the spread of the coronavirus – together.
