Flipper

The “Flipper” from Flight Display Systems of Alpharetta, Ga., fits into that welcomed category of products that fill a need without breaking the bank.

The thin, five-inch LCD screen is designed to mount to the underside of the glareshield, staying out of the way when not in use and flipping down when needed. It’s intended to serve as an extra display screen in cockpits where space is limited.

The Flipper from Flight Display Systems is a $5,000 fold-down LCD display that mounts to the underside of the glareshield, allowing it to be flipped up and out of view when not in use. The five-inch display can be used to display enhanced-vision camera images, XM satellite weather data, moving maps or just about any other data pilots might need.

It’s called the Flipper, and for good reason. The new product is a retrofit item that flips into position on the aircraft glare shield to give the pilot a supplemental five-inch LCD screen. Flight Display Systems of Alpharetta, Ga. (Booth No. 1643), has come up with it as a way to make newer technology, such as XM weather data and enhanced-vision systems, accessible to owners of older aircraft.
