  Artificial Horizon Option - $395.00

True Flight’s Electronic Attitude Indicator option from PC Flight Systems automatically monitors your pitch and roll. If you exceed certain parameters that would not be expected in IFR flight you automatically receive an alert on your display with the EAI in the corner of your screen. This instant notification provides you with plenty of time to recover, before it develops into a serious situation.

The Electronic Attitude Indicator is a solid state device that uses accelerometers on 3 separate axis to measure pitch, roll and yaw. Power and data are through the USB cable shown above. Although for supplemental use only, the electronic attitude indicator adds an invaluable layer of safety should your primary attitude indicator fail.
