Reiff Preheat Systems selected for USAFA cadet training fleet


Reiff Preheat Systems, manufacturer of electric engine preheat systems and related products, is pleased to report that its system was recently chosen by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to equip its new fleet of 35 aircraft used for cadet flight training at the US Air Force Academy.  Embry-Riddle also has had Reiff’s systems installed on their large fleet at their Prescott, AZ campus for several years.

“Demand for our products continues to grow, and this is just one example of the success our system has been enjoying.”, says Robert Reiff, owner and President.  “Our year-to-date sales are up 56% over last year, and sales have grown at an average of over 20% per year over the past 10 years.  We believe the main factor contributing to our growth is that aircraft owners and maintenance shops have improved their awareness of: 1) the benefits of preheating to extend the life of an aircraft engine by reducing the wear and tear caused by cold starts, and 2) the advantages of our system over competing ones.  In fact, due to our growth we plan to move to a larger facility later in the year.”
