Zodiac Sheds Good Light On Problematic Cabin Hygiene

Zodiac Aerospace has filed an ingenious patent for a comprehensive UV lighting system which would cleanse the whole of an aircraft cabin while the aircraft is unoccupied—between flights or on an overnight.

In the patent—one of AeroPatent’s recent discoveries—Zodiac proposes a number of UV lighting combinations which could do the work of thoroughly disinfecting the aircraft interior. The system described would effectively disinfect both the air in the cabin and cabin surfaces, textiles, etc.

User Friendly Guide to Buying/Selling Your Seat Manufacturing Company (not just Zodiac)

Rumours that Zodiac Aerospace may be looking for a buyer and that French aircraft engine maker Safran may be considering a buy is distressing to this writer.

It’s the type of roughs-shot opportunistic consolidation aviation is addicted to–and it needs to break the habit. Please allow me to share my thoughts and rant a little.

I’m going to mention things I don’t usually talk about, but in the interest of edification I’ll go into them now; with the clear caveat that none of what I say is particularly true of Zodiac, and anything that is true of Zodiac is also true of other players. I won’t say which is which.
