In addition to significantly ramping up infectious disease safety precautions and protective guidelines at each of its locations, Ross Aviation is now offering aircraft cabin disinfecting services to help combat the Coronavirus.
The company is providing these services as part of its mission to anticipate and deliver on customers' needs and to support its team members during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We're pleased to not only be able to offer these capabilities for the well-being of our customers, but also to help keep our team members, who are essential front-line workers, healthy and productive during the downturn in flight activity,” says Brian Corbett, Ross CEO. “Times like these are when you direct your focus to the well-being of passengers, pilots and team members, and keep your company's mission and core values at the forefront.”
A typical business aircraft requires roughly one to two hours to disinfect, depending on aircraft size, and the airplane can be returned to service immediately afterwards. The components used in the process are approved by aircraft manufacturers, and a typical treatment remains effective from seven to thirty days depending on the wear of the areas. In addition, these services can also be applied to airport offices, automobiles and other interior spaces, if requested.
Ross Aviation has retained David Allen Certified to advise and train its team members on disinfecting services at Ross locations, beginning with company facilities in Scottsdale, Arizona (KSDL) and Sarasota, Florida (KSRQ). The company's proprietary process follows NBAA guidelines for disinfection and uses EPA-registered and aviation-approved products to disinfect airplanes and prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
In addition to making sanitising and protectant services available at Ross' locations, David Allen Certified has AOG rapid response teams available to arrive within eight to twenty-four hours to clean and disinfect aircraft on demand. These services can be scheduled directly through Ross Aviation's Sarasota and Scottsdale locations, or on its website where updates regarding the increasing availability of disinfecting services at additional of Ross Aviation locations can also be found.
