DEICERplane was first developed in 2002 and there are currently over 50 units in operation, worldwide. Designed to offer a simple, low-cost solution to aircraft de-icing, DEICERplane uses the principles of convection to heat a medium so the de-icing fluid is heated indirectly. The simple automated heating system does not shear the fluid, making it a safe option. DEICERplane can be configured to heat and dispense a single or multiple fluids of any type, dependent on the single or multiple tank requirements of the user. The fluid can be maintained at 85C, provided the unit is connected to a power source when not in use, so DEICERplane is ready to use at a moment’s notice.

The DEICERplane system can be installed on a new or used chassis, making it a cost effective solution for even the smallest airport or ground-handling operation. 


Powered GSE always required good maintenance throughout, to ensure it remains at optimum capacity for the duration of its expected lifetime, and potentially beyond.

Used GSE supplied by Falcon Airside Ltd will be sold after rigorous inspections and repairs but maintenance and servicing is still available for units already in operation from a different supplier.

The commissioning, maintenance and spares supply services will keep your powered equipment in use, and cost-efficient. 


GSE operations, however small or big, can be challenging in today’s fast-paced airport environment. Falcon Airside Ltd can assess your GSE fleet and advise how to make effective decisions regarding costs and operations for the future. An in-depth report of the current operation and assessment of equipment on a unit by unit basis can determine the longevity of the unit, spare part availability and the expected depreciation of each unit. This type of report can provide essential insight into the GSE operation, allowing owners and ground-handlers to make the best financial decisions, going forward.less
