Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics has been manufacturing standby instruments and backup power supplies for many years and has applied all that knowledge and experience to develop the MD302 standby attitude module. The MD302 is self-contained and provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information in a small package measuring just two inches by five inches and weighing 1.6 pounds. The unit’s small dimensions make it easy to squeeze into just about any instrument panel, and the MD302 can be mounted horizontally or vertically.
