In each issue of Plane & Pilot magazine, we share a handful of aviation-related products that we feel pilots and aviation enthusiasts would love to have.
The gear round-up in our October 2019 issue included a hoodie designed to look like Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit, a P-51 Mustang model, and much more. Click through the slideshow below to see all of the items.
For off-airport flying in which automated weather information isn’t available, this wind meter from WindScribe is an easy way for pilots to determine if conditions are suitable for takeoff and landing. The WindScribe provides key wind data, such as current speed, max headwind and tailwind, as well as a running average wind and an average wind reading over the course of five seconds. In addition to wind data, temperature is also provided, helping pilots anticipate foggy conditions.
Weighing just 3.5 ounces and attached to a lanyard, the WindScribe is easily portable. It also includes a Velcro strap and bracket for mounting purposes. The WindScribe is priced at $179.99.Learn more at aircraftspruce.com.
