|Simple Visual Description of How it Works
This graphic depicts what actually happens when the Sun's energy hits a window. Aero-Shields
PILOT ARMOR is placed to the right of the glass in the center of this graphic. Notice how little energy passes
through the glass and into the cockpit.
Fabric Specific information from manufacturer
- Excellent solar protection-eliminates up to 86% of the sun's rays
- Ideal compromise between solar protection and light transparency
- Provides significant
-Fabric is manufactured under tension during
the entire production process.
-Superb dimensional stability helps maintain fabric
shape without bagging or sagging.
-PILOT ARMOR is tear and dirt resistant, and
will stand up to tough conditions for years.
- Airline pilots have a 30% higher risk for Cataract problems and Malignant Melanoma
skin cancer issues.
- Exposure to "unfiltered" cosmic radiation (UVA) exponentially
increased due to the higher altitudes flown.
- Aircraft windows provide some protection from
UVB, but none from UVA.
- Aero-Shields Inc. advises everyone to wear good quaility sunglasses,
apply suntan lotion with at least SPF 45, and install your PILOT ARMOR!
of you apply sunscreen religiously and we commend you for that. But sadly, more of us don't. PILOT ARMOR is simple
to use and easy to remember. When the Sun is out, put your screens up!
security system due to fabric reflectivity.
-Can be left installed while parked
out on the ramp at the FBO.
-Fabric reflects direct sunlight / UV rays from entering
the cockpit. Protects upholstery, glare-shield, radio & equipment stack. This is very important for operators using
the window mounted EFB / iPad systems.
-Will not damage acryllic windscreens.
Fabric is a screen, no "super-heated" energy is trapped between the window and the PILOT ARMOR, which will make
it safe for use on delicate acrylic windows.
-Is not a "Bubble-Wrap"
style sunshades which has been found to possibly damage acryllic window types.
