The short answer is “yes.” The sun is one of the biggest dangers to pilots, especially those who fly regularly. The higher up into the air you go, the more harmful the effects of the sun can get. Thermal and UVA radiation not only heats your cockpit to make it more uncomfortable but also increases the risk of skin cancer and cataracts. These rays can also reduce outside visibility.
With Pilot Armor®, you are able to reduce glare, heat, and radiation in your cockpit. It also stops “hot-spots” from forming on instrument panels and window-mounted EFB/iPad displays. Durable, flexible, lightweight, and resilient, Pilot Armor® is a low-cost protective screen and theft-deterrent system that easily attaches to your aircraft windows.
You don’t have to be an airline pilot to take advantage of our shade either. We have templates for almost every type of aircraft, including general aviation, corporate, light sport, commuter, and regional jets. Don’t see your type of aircraft listed on our website? Just contact us with what you fly, and we will manufacture a Pilot Armor® for you. Custom shades can be made for any size and shape of the window.
