(AH-64D Apache) Environmental Control System
The ECS provides crewmember comfort through ventilation, heating, and air conditioning. Ventilation is provided by pilot and CPG gaspers, which can be opened to admit outside air into the cockpit. The ECS also powers ventilation fans that provide forced air exchange between the cockpits and for avionics cooling.
