Company Cautions on Aircraft Disinfectants

Its experts stress the need to use aviation-specific products and make sure they not only eliminate existing pathogens but protect against future ones.

As a growing number of organizations turn their attention to disinfection to guard against COVID-19, aviation disinfection and protection specialist David Allen Certified advises ensuring the use of the right products and making sure any such protection not only eliminates existing pathogens but protects against future ones.

The company cleans and disinfects surfaces and then adds a protectant that guards against bacteria, germs, and viruses for up to 30 days. Key to this, it cautions, is ensuring that the product is correct for aviation. “While there are a host of products that fit the bill that are EPA registered and FDA approved, not all products are aviation approved. It is important to choose the right products and the right recurrent protocol,” the company advised.

Founded in 2009 when the industry was grappling with the H1N1 pandemic, David Allen Certified has established a base of ready response teams that provide direct services, but also provides assistance in choosing products, offers a licensed vendor program, and has a disinfection and protection training and certification program. The Ross Aviation FBO network signed on to the training and certification program this year.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, David Allen Certified is expanding its reach across other industries, most recently extending its services to motorsports-specific human performance training provider PitFit Training.
