Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is a byproduct of internal combustion engines. Many internal combustion engine airplanes are heated by air that has been warmed by circulating air around the exhaust system using a heater shroud.

Continued exposure increases risks to aviators, including impaired judgement, oxygen starvation, loss of control, and eventually incapacitation and death.
