This Kool Scoop cockpit ventilator provides quick, high-volume ventilation during ground operations for most low wing airplanes. It fits Piper Cherokee, Warrior, Archer, Mooney, Diamond, and other models with a window vent. Airplanes such as the Bonanza, Commanche, Aztec and others can also utilize the product so long as it is installed with the lower corner supported at the window frame. View the dimensional diagram in "Documents" to see the typical window cutout for the Kool Scoop.
The product is very easy to mount: simply peel off the adhesive backing sealer and stick it in place on the side window where it will swing out the vent opening. It provides a comfortable air flow for pilot and passengers while taxiing or waiting for clearance on the ground. It is constructed of molded clear acrylic with stainless fasteners for adjustable hinge tension.
I can’t believe I waited this long to buy this product. It made an immediate difference in the Florida heat cooling the cockpit from engine start-up through moments before take-off.
Airplane Air Scoop works great on my Piper Archer Brings In a lot of extra air while taxing and very easy to install. Great price too !
Excellent fit, easy to install with no modifications needed - love it!
Product arrived promptly in safe packaging. Super easy to install in a few minutes. Real solid quality product that works great. It does work on a P35 Bonanza with the pilot window that has stainless hinges and latch.
Not many aviation items are value purchases. This is. It works well to cool the cockpit from the prop wash and forward motion of the plane, and sits inside the window out of the way when not in use. The mount feels very durable.
I put off buying these scoops for years. Thought about it every time I flew but didn’t act on it. Finally did act. Got one for the pilot side first. Loved it. Immediately ordered one for the other side. Wish I hadn’t flown so many years without them. Do they get in the way when they’re not being used? Yes they do a little. But it’s a very small price to pay for how effectively they bring air into the cabin. Absolutely would buy again!
Scoop works excellently. Installs in less than 5 minutes and does a great job keeping both front and rear seat passengers cool on the ground. Every airplane operated in a warm climate should have one!
I got tired of trying to hold the door partially open while I taxied from the ramp to the runway. Summers here are generally in the mid to upper 90s. I flew a plane years ago and it had a scoop like this, during one very hot taxi recently I decided to see if I could find one online. Wow am I glad I did. The installation is self-evident, though it has instructions. The adhesive is quick so be ready to have it in proper position when you press it to the plexiglass. I positioned mine and it was ready to go immediately. I went out on a hot afternoon and started the plane, I immediately flipped the scoop into the slip stream and it worked its magic flawlessly. I kept it extended until I made the tower call for takeoff. It easily folds back out of the way and the storm window closed. Excellent purchase. It has a warning about taxi speeds and not to be used in flight. I believe this is because you could possibly pop the window with the excessive pressures at those high speeds. Would purchase again if needed.
This vent really does work. Lets cold air in while taxing and waiting for for clearance to depart. Only wish I could keep window open with scoop in place while in closed traffic.
Works pretty good in a Cherokee six. Back seat pax said it really helps back there too
Yes, please use the dropdown menu on this webpage to select left hand or right hand model. Left hand is for the pilot side, right hand is for the co-pilot side.
No, these should only be used when on ground taxing or waiting for clearance on the ground.
Dimensions for the Kool Scoop are 7-3/4" (extended--edge of hinge to end of scoop) x 5-3/4" (tab to edge of scoop). The depth (how far it protrudes into the cockpit when adhered to the inside of the window) is 1-1/4" if the scoop is swung to a position parallel to the window. The scoop will not fit a window or canopy if the tracks or "sill" over which the scoop must swing is wider than 1-1/4".
