10 Reasons to Love Smoking Airplanes Smoke Systems (Pilots Agree!)

10 Reasons to Love Smoking Airplanes Smoke Systems (Pilots Agree!)

Do you know why pilots choose to install a smoke system in their plane? It’s just plain cool.

We’ve talked to many pilots over the years—many have said they were compelled to get a smoke system after seeing one at an airshow or watching a friend get one and seeing how cool it looked when they flew in the sky.

But not every smoke system is created equal! Learn why pilots trust a Smoking Airplanes smoke system—and why you’ll find our systems in thousands of planes worldwide!

1. Your smoke system is ready to install when it arrives (No cutting, measuring, or adding fittings!)

Our smoke system is 100% ready to install right when you take it out of the box. No need for any additional cutting or measuring! All the hoses are trimmed, and fittings are already installed for you to use.


2. The easy-to-use manual makes installation a breeze

When it comes time to install your smoke system, we went the extra mile to provide an easy-to-follow, color installation manual complete with a quick-glance inventory, along with step-by-step instructions. Nobody likes trying to figure things out in black and white—pilots love the color guide in a binder that lays flat, full of photos!

3. A secure connection with easy-to-remove swivel connectors instead of barbs

Other smoke systems use barbs instead of swivel connectors. Barbs make it incredibly difficult to remove the system at any point in the future. It’s our goal to make our systems easy for you to use, and one way we do that is by making sure our smoke systems use the best connectors.

4. Better control of smoke with remote momentary functionality

Rather than having smoke continuously on, our system allows pilots to engage smoke when they want it, with the push of a button. That’s why Smoking Airplanes smoke systems come with remote momentary functionality. This switch adds a quick stop/release function. Some pilots locate the switch on the stick which looks awesome!

5. Successfully certified by FAA

When you install our smoke system, you can feel confident knowing that thousands of system installations have been certified by the FAA. Form 337 can be submitted to the FAA by you or your A&P mechanic.

6. Ready for inverted flight right out of the box

It’s our goal to make it quick and easy for you to start flying—in any direction! As soon as your kit is installed, you’re ready for inverted flight. (No additional parts to install!).

7. A tank that doesn’t leak or dent

Unlike other smoke systems with seams, our smoke systems are monolithic. This means they don’t have any seams, and you don't have to worry about leaking or denting while you fly!

8. Quick visibility of your smoke oil level

Our tanks are transparent so you can easily see your oil level at all times. No more guessing or wasting time opening the cap and looking inside with a flashlight! Simply glance at the tank and know how much oil you have left for smoke trails.
