Belite's new Angle Of Attack (AOA) instrumentation is packed with new technology, allowing immediate cockpit display of the aircraft's angle of attack. AOA is a useful flight parameter, increasing pilot safety and providing vital flight feedback to the pilot.
This is the most exciting instrument we've ever offered. It is fun to use, every pilot wants one, it is easy to install, and it increases pilot safety.
Belite's AOA utilizes a ball-bearing mounted magnetic sensor, which in turn is connected to a flight angle weathervane sensor. The position of the sensor is fed to a brilliant, daylight readable cockpit display which shows the angle utilizing green, yellow and red LEDs. The nearly frictionless bearings of Belite's AOA sensor, combined with a mass balanced weathervane sensor, allow immediate feedback to the pilot of the aircraft's current AOA.
Designed for use in experimental aircraft only, this AOA instrumentation product is composed of the following components:
Ball-bearing mounted magnetic position sensor with CNC milled, streamlined aluminum enclosure
General purpose aluminum mounting arm
Interface electronic module for AOA sensor module
Brilliant, three color, daylight readable LED display module
Programming switch harness
12 feet of cabling
The unit includes a switch harness which allows the user to select the level cruise point (base of green arc) and a high angle of attack point (top of yellow arc).
All of this is included for $594.95. The LED display module for this system is only available in the standard 2.25" round case. The instrument will be ready for delivery in early 2014.
