The FAA has awarded supplemental type certificate approval to Innotech-Execaire Aviation Group to install its I-Cair cabin-air quality system on the Bombardier Global series. The I-Cair system was jointly developed by Dorval, Canada-based Innotech Aviation and Montreal-based Air Data, using its JetAir bio-protection system, with installations being done at Innotech’s completion center in Montreal. According to the company, it can be installed on aircraft as they go through the initial cabin completion process or as part of a retrofit program. 

I-Cair is an active system that uses electric sterilization to catch and inactivate biological and chemical air contaminants. A spokesman for the company said it also provides a “substantial reduction in cabin ozone levels, which are naturally elevated at high altitudes.”
