Flight Display Systems has introduced “The Flipper,” a 5-inch LCD display that installs easily on most existing glareshields and flips into position when needed. It can be viewed in the cockpit by both pilots.
With the advent of new sources of streaming data flowing into the cockpit, aircraft owners are challenged to find efficient ways to display this information. Completion and refurbishment companies are often hard pressed to find panel room for data like Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS), satellite weather information, flight cameras and Moving Maps. The Flipper gives them a solution that does not require additional space or a rework of the entire instrument panel.
Sierra Industries has started a Supplemental Type Certificate for The Flipper installation and a Flight Display Systems patent is pending. For certification purposes, The Flipper is considered an Advisory Information Display.
