Chris is joined by Tim Wakeford – CEO Caeli Nova

Great name – Fresh Air!

Caeli Nova – ‘Launches emergency oxygen system which helps reduce fuel and emissions’ – the name is Cordillera – ‘Mountain Range’

• Patented breathing technology will deliver improved safety
• Will also overcome existing limitations when operating the planets most challenging routes, such as those over high terrain regions
• More direct routes
• Reduction in fuel
• Reduction in emissions
• Shorter flight times for passengers

Current regulations limit airline’s ability to operate the most direct air routes, such as L888 over the Himalayas.
Cordillera allows an aircraft to safely divert at a higher altitude to a suitable alternate airport following a decompression event.

Caeli Nova received initial design organization approval from EASA in December 2020 following an eight-month process.
With design authority now in place, the company can now continue the development and installation of its first product Cordillera under its own Supplementary Type Certification (STC).

A great innovation in so many ways!
