Count on Sportys' Uncle
Hal to keep shaking things up at AEA 2005! Hal notes that while
pilots train to fly needle, ball and airspeed, doing so in an
emergency is a very different matter. That's why Sporty's is
offering a backup electric attitude indicator with inclinometer for
the (very) low price of $1595.
A recent FAA Advisory Circular (AC 91-75) allows and encourages
the installation of a backup attitude indicator in place of the
turn coordinator. In the FAA's words, "Substituting a second
attitude indicator (with a power source independent from the
primary attitude indicator) for the rate-of-turn indicator will
provide an increased level of safety."
Made in the United
States by Castleberry Instruments, Sporty's Electric Attitude
Indicator weighs less than four pounds, fits in a standard 3-1/8"
opening and is easy to install. It has no plastic moving parts and
is backlit for total redundancy. For less than the cost of a
hand-held GPS, you can have a brand new, TSO'd electric attitude
indicator with inclinometer and an industry-leading 2-year
Not only is this a backup for your vacuum system, it is a backup
for your primary attitude indicator itself. "This product is the
culmination of 14 years of work by Sporty's. We believe in it so
strongly that we're installing one in all eleven of our IFR
airplanes," says Founder/Chairman Hal Shevers.
The Electric Attitude Indicator [#2060A] is available in either
14v or 28v for $1595.
