Air Conditioning The Piper Cherokee Product Line 710391

For many years, the designers of general aviation light aircraft have been more preoccupied with safety and performance than comfort. In order to expand the user base and utility of the small airplane, we must provide the elementary comforts which we have come to demand from our automobiles. We are currently working to improve sound levels, seating comfort, ventilation, and other human factors; now we must air condition.
This paper will not deal with the basics of refrigeration system design as many books are available on this subject. We will touch briefly on a review of system theory and types, then take you through the conceptual thinking, design considerations, certification, and service test phases of our program.
