Everyday thousands of international flights land all over Europe. Since the outbreak of ZIKA, European authorities have been in close contact with the WHO and taken measurements to minimalize the spread of ZIKA. However, since the beginning of 2016, some European countries reported several cases of ZIKA virus infected persons coming back from trips to South America or the Caribbean region.
Therefore, some EU Member States drafted more stringent disinsection requirements. Some require aircraft disinsection not only on aircraft coming from affected areas, but on all inbound flights. Some EU member states (e.g. Italy) oblige to have your aircraft treated before you enter the state - even if you fly a single engine piston and from a country with a low zika risk.
Are Aircraft Insecticides used for Private and Business Aviation? The answer is YES!
Furthermore, it is not just commercial flights that should be sprayed - business and general aviation are also targeted to be treated according to the disinsection requirements that have been prepared for commercial aviation.
To prevent the spread of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases (ZIKA, Malaria,...), which can cause disease in humans, plants and animals, the World Health Organization (WHO) advises the use of aircraft insecticides to carry out disinsection treatments of aircraft coming from affected areas. Aero-Sense developed Aircraft Insecticide formulations according to the WHO recommendations on 'Aircraft Disinsection Insecticides'. These products are used according to one of the WHO recommended techniques for aircraft disinsection: Pre-flight, Blocks Away, Top-of-Descent or Residual Treatment.
Aero-Sense is the market leader in Europe for de-icing and anti-icing chemicals in the field of General and Business Aviation, and now also offer Aircraft Insecticides developed according to World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations.
Aero-Sense Aircraft Insecticides are based on the WHO approved active substance 1-R trans phenothrin and/or permethrin. The different formulations are available in different aerosol can sizes (40g, 60g, 100g) and can be supplied with a one-shot or multi-shot actuator. For general and business aviation, we recommend the product ASD 40g aerosol. These small sized cans are excellent for use in smaller aircraft.
