Duncan Aviation of Lincoln, Neb. (Booth No. 5580), a provider of airframe inspections, engine maintenance, cabin and cockpit systems retrofits, painting and interior work, as well as pre-owned aircraft sales and acquisitions, has acquired several examples of a dry-ice blasting machine to accomplish a specific service bulletin for its Bombardier Challenger customers.
A contingent of U.S. Air Force flight attendants participated in this year’s NBAA Flight Attendants/Flight Technicians conference, not just to learn from their peers but to share their own experiences using dry ice as a cooling medium to keep food safe on long trips. It turns out that a sufficient quantity of dry ice allows for weeks of operation and proper food storage. There are important safety considerations when using dry ice.
