Just out of curiosity, how is the 62 heated? does it use an automotive style heater core in the liquid cooling setup?
Yes, it has heater cores similar to a car. The right engine provides heat for your feet and the left engine is for the windshield defrost.

Ron is correct. The DA62 uses a heat exchanger like a car which is far safer than exhaust heat and thus CO is not an issue.

Unbelievable!!! I never knew we could generate contrails with our planes. Imagine holding your phone out the vent window at -45degC to take that video :shock:

He deleted the original post with the screenshot of the G1000 OAT display (and a 54 knot headwind, :shock: ) so the link broke, but this one works:
