Air purification providers appoint distributor
VSE is proud to support ACA and ACA/IAE technology with product distribution, installation and support, seeing it as an important step for both commercial and business jet travel in restoring confidence.

VSE Aviation has been named the preferred partner for Aviation Clean Air's (ACA) airborne and ACA/IAE's (International Aero Engineering) ground-use purification and decontamination systems. VSE Aviation and its subsidiary 1st Choice Aerospace will provide distribution and installation and product support.

Laboratory tests conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis in a setting designed to replicate the ionisation conditions of corporate and commercial aircraft interiors showed that neutralisation of COVID-19 began immediately and that up to 99.4 per cent of the virus was inactivated within 30 minutes both in the air and on surfaces.

ACA's patented ionisation purification system is certified by the FAA for aircraft installation on multiple platform types. The proactive system, which operates through the aircraft's existing environmental control system, immediately improves interior air quality, eliminates odours and kills pathogens in the air and on surfaces throughout the aircraft. It uses a natural purification process that produces no harmful ozone or chemicals and requires no maintenance.

John Cuomo, president and CEO of VSE Corporation, comments: “We are proud to support ACA and ACA/IAE technology with product distribution, installation and support. We see this is as an important step for both commercial and business jet travel in restoring the confidence of passengers and crew.”
