South Florida Sport Aviation is Flyer's exclusive distributor for high quality products for Van's RV kit planes. Together we provide high quality professional and easy to install upgrades made with attention to detail, elegance and performance to the North American market.

Flyer developed an efficient A/C design for the RV-10 battle tested in the harshest climates such as tropical Brazil with recirculating air capability, digital climate control and 3 speed digital fan control. Installation is as simple as it gets with minimal drilling and no sheet cutting since it is specifically designed for the RV-10 and is ready for installation with no adaptations required.


South Florida Sport Aviation’s air conditioning system was designed and engineered to endure the extreme tropical climates of Brazil. Flying in hundreds of RV’s around the world this system has a proven track record of performance and reliability second to none. Our kit was developed with a special consideration for the home builder. Whether your aircraft is being built or already flying our kits offer a straight forward installation that can be surely accomplished by any builder.

This system works just like your car. We use an engine driven compressor, condenser, evaporator, and blower managed by a digital temperature controller with reticulation capabilities. System performance: 21, 000 BTU/h@38°C-320m³/h all system components weigh a total of 51 lbs. and are arranged through out the airframe in order to have minimal effect on the weight and balance of the aircraft. The air scoop houses the condenser. Flight test results show less than 2kts variation in speed and with the IO 540 you’ll have plenty of power to spare.

Safety features include a temperature sensor and a low pressure safety switch with indication at the digital controller.Also included is our interior overhead console designed for individual passenger comfort. With adjustable air vents, eyeball reading lights, and dome lights each passenger can regulate their own personal space.
