Peregrine and Lee Aerospace Partner to Create a Clean Air Solution For Citation 560 XL, Including Aftermarket Aircraft
Peregrine and Lee Aerospace have joined forces during this time of COVID-19 to deliver Aviation Clean Air (ACA) system installation data and Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for the Citation 560XL. The ACA pathogen disinfection technology eradicates the COVID-19 virus.
Peregrine-developed STC’s for the ACA system are also available for aftermarket installation in the Gulfstream G-IV and GIV-SP models, Falcon 50 and 900, in addition to the Bombardier CL600 series family. Peregrine expects to announce additional air certification agency validations for these STCs to support greater accessibility to this technology.
“After developing STCs for other aircraft with Peregrine, we are pleased to incorporate this all-important health protection ACA system in our own company’s aircraft,” said Jim Lee, founder and president of Lee Aerospace, who provided the 560XL STC aircraft.
“This system implements a layered defense for protecting aircraft passengers and crew by supplementing cleaning procedures with an active, always-on system that provides continuous, effective neutralization of harmful pathogens,” Lee said. “This installation demonstrates the availability of the ACA system to users and operators of most sizes of business aircraft.”
The Aviation Clean Air units offer a proactive air and surface purification system for aircraft, providing immediate clean, safe, and healthy interior air. In addition to removing odors and allergens, their patented and proven, needle point bipolar ionization (NPBI™) system installed in the aircraft environmental control system, kills pathogens throughout the cockpit, cabin and pressurized cargo areas. The system eliminates pathogens including, but not limited to:
- Bacteria associated with SARS
- Bird Flu (H5N1)
- Swine Flu (H1N1)
- Eliminating mold spores, MRSA, E.coli, Tuberculosis, C.diff, pneumonia and more
Testing at an independent laboratory showed that the ACA system was 99 percent effective in eliminating SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
