Clean Your Turbine

Turbine Soot Master is a carbon-soot cleaner and degreaser that has been developed to effectively clean carbon-exhaust buildup and staining on turbine aircraft. It uses a streak-free formula to safely dissolve carbon, grease and oil. The product is rinse free and doesn't require the use of any water–just spray on and wipe the surface clean with a microfiber or terry cloth. Contact: www.realcleanproducts.com.

Complete Your Survival Kit

Personal-locator beacons use built-in GPS coupled with a 406 MHz satellite transmitter to alert search-and-rescue teams to your location. The ACR's ResQLink from Sporty's weighs only 4.6 ounces and is sized at just 1.3x1.9x3.9 inches. It features a five-watt transmitter and a 66-channel GPS that locks on fast. A built-in test function assures that your beacon is working properly. Battery life at freezing temperatures is 30 to 40 hours. You can also send "I'm OK" messages with GPS coordinates to your friends and family. Contact: www.sportys.com.

iPad Briefcase

Sporty's new Pilot's iPad Briefcase features a soft padded main compartment sized for an iPad, even if it's in a case. A variety of internal and external pockets can be used for storing a charging cable, cleaning cloth, backup battery and stylus. There are two options for carrying the briefcase. For lighter loads, two carry handles can be used. For heavier loads, the carry handles retract out of sight and a padded shoulder strap can be attached. The briefcase measures 12x9x2 inches.
