Sept-Oct 2007 On The Radar
On June 28, Cirrus Design Corporation finally lifted the veil on “the-jet,” the much-anticipated clean-sheet design for its “personal jet.” “We’re calling it a ‘personal jet’ not because of its size, but because it’s a natural extension of our SR22 line,” said Cirrus cofounder and CEO Alan Klapmeier. “Like the SR22, the-jet is designed to be owner flown, and it will be loaded with innovative features, including the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System. While it’s technologically advanced, it’s also designed to be exceptionally easy to fly, offering customers the opportunity to grow into yet another lifestyle change with Cirrus.” " />
Mid-Continent Instruments Produces 4300 Series Electric Attitude Indicators For Best-Selling Helicopter In The World
Mid-Continent’s 4300 Series Attitude Indicator is the latest in a list of key components the company has manufactured for Robinson Helicopter, the world’s leading producer of civil helicopters. “The 4300 attitude indicator was designed specifically to survive demanding helicopter operations and high-vibration environments,” said Todd Winter, president of Mid-Continent Instruments. “We’ve incorporated new technology to prevent premature wear and tear on critical parts, so that helicopter operators can realize a better value from this product and achieve much longer life.”
The 4300 Series Attitude Indicators are perfect for use as primary or standby artificial horizon in helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. The dual-voltage gyros offer 10-32 volt DC replacement for use in either 14- or 28-volt aircraft, have anti-reflective glass to enhance visibility and reduce pilot fatigue, and outlast the competition with a service life that’s more than double the life of most electric gyros.
Mid-Continent Instruments also produces units for aftermarket installations. In many cases, the 4300 is a drop-in replacement for older units. The 4300s were originally designed as standby units for the aftermarket, but their design has been so popular that 10 OEMs are using them as standard equipment.
