Flight deck is the most dry section in an aircraft with almost no (read: close to zero) moisture content in the air. It is in fact World’s most dehydrating working environment. 

All of our organs, including our brains, need water to function properly. If you’re dehydrated, your body isn’t running well — and that can lead to stress.

Already a modest dehydration, increase the Cortisol level. Cortisol is one of our stress hormones. The extremely dry air in flight deck makes it harder to remain in a good hydrated status. A striking humidity increase can help to keep stress levels down.

Innovations and new technologies help pilots work more efficiently and safely. A flight deck humidifier is an appreciated feature on long-haul aircraft. Improving working conditions with reduced risk for dehydration, fatigue and tiredness.

Significantly better humidity makes pilots feel better and more easily stay healthy. A better humidity reduces dryness induced fatigue and help pilots recover faster after a long-haul flight.

With almost 1,000 flight hours per year, pilots (and cabin crew attendants) are World’s most frequent flyers.

Over the years 85 % of all 787-pilots know the difference. Humidifier Onboard flight deck is a ‘de facto’ standard on Boeing 787 and it is a popular selection on the Airbus A35O as well as Boeing 777X.

Airbus have followed the successful passenger Aircraft A350 and included Flight Deck and Crew rest humidifiers as option for the new flagship Frieghter A350F.

Important to know:

  •  Flight deck humidifiers improve and elevates humidity in Flight deck from 2-3% to around 17%
  • Crew rest humidifier improves and elevate humidity in crew rest to 22%
  • Today Flight deck and Crew rest humidifiers is becoming a `de facto` standard with >90% selection rate on long haul wide body passenger aircraft
