Tecnam pitot head heat checks

An injury/minor burn to the hand was experienced by an Aerobility flyer cover whilst checking the operation of the Tecnam’s pitot heater by touch during a pre-flight check. It seems that the pitot heats up significantly faster on the Tecnam than on the Pipers, and this can create an unexpected hazard for those unfamiliar with it. In order to prevent it from becoming a recurring problem can you please ask all Instructors involved with the operation of the Tecnam to keep it in mind, and to highlight it to their Students as part of their pre-flight briefing. Thanks
