Developed in close partnership with the Edmonton International Airport, Dragon Heat’s aircraft heating technology is based on an ultra-efficient cleantech burner that offers 100% fuel combustion for lower emissions and less fuel usage. With the compact, lightweight and portable ACI-SM1000, cold-weather airports across the world can benefit from a sustainable solution to a major industry requirement.


Emissions are a primary hazard to the health and safety of commercial company employees. Dragon Heat has ensured that its heater is compliant with all commercial safety regulations and standards and minimizes the risk of emissions exposure for technical staff.


Airplane gate heating is a major operational cost for the world’s cold-weather airports. Dragon Heat’s aircraft heater is the emerging solution to aircraft heating challenges and has a proven track record of delivering on performance even in low-temperature or other difficult conditions. Benefits include:

Fuel usage reductions from a minimum of 50% up to 72%

Independent aircraft heating without rear auxiliary power engagement up to -40C

No requirement for certified personnel onboard the aircraft during heating

In combination, these three competitive advantages can reduce the cost of heating an aircraft by $1000/hour and offer a cost savings of $100,000.00 per plane per winter compared to current market solutions.

Our burner’s superior efficiency cuts the time required for full aircraft heating in half, reducing costly delays and labor. The high-quality construction and innovative design of the ACI-SM1000 result in additional cost savings due to in lower maintenance requirements and fewer parts replacement



Dragon Heat is committed to developing innovative combustion products that offer major environmental benefits to the international aviation industry. Our aircraft heater has ground-breaking advantages for cleaner and more sustainable aircraft heating

Competitive products in aircraft heating operate with an efficiency of 22 liters of diesel fuel per hour and require 40 Hz of additional ground power. Exceeding industry standards, the ACI-SM1000 is twice as efficient and clean-burning as conventional heating models.
