Ash Vij Has A Mission... To Keep You Breathing
Ash Vij's CO Guardian is the undisputed leader in carbon monoxide detectors for General Aviation, and are now included as standard safety equipment on all new Cessna 172, 182, 206, Columbia Aircraft, Diamond DA40 and Skycrane helicopters -- and starting June 08, CO Guardian will now be standard on all Cirrus Aircraft.
Vij is the President of CO Guardian. He's been involved in General Aviation for years, both in terms of his CO Guardian product line as well as being the President of Premier Aviation which has been in business since 1972. Various versions of the CO Guardian product line can integrate with the new Garmin G900X, as well as the G1000, GNS480, Electronic Instrument EI-MVP50, Advance-Flight Systems model AF-2500/AF-3500, Grand Rapids Sport Series Engine Monitor, Blue Mountain Avionics and Aerosonic/OPT Technology.
This data is important... because ignorance of CO can produce astonishingly harmful symptoms. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and toxic gas produced as a by-product of combustion. Ash explains that, "Carbon monoxide inhibits the blood's ability to carry oxygen to body tissues including vital organs such as the heart and brain. When CO is inhaled, it combines with the oxygen carrying hemoglobin of the blood to form carboxyhemoglobin (COHb). Once combined with the hemoglobin, that hemoglobin is no longer available for transporting oxygen."
