Belite Electronics Unveils Patch Flyer Avionics

Lightweight Instruments Designed For Homebuilt And Part 103 Aircraft

Belite Aircraft is taking the wraps off its line of extremely lightweight, solid state avionics designed especially for affordability, reliability and ease of use this week.

Marketed under Belite Electronics, individual Patch Flyer instruments weigh only 1/2 ounce (15 grams), and the panel-mounted full line of instruments, including metal water jet cut panel, mounting hardware and connections, weighs substantially less than one pound. They're designed to easily fit into instrument panels of homebuilt aircraft. Installation is straight-forward and many of the instruments are available in small enclosures which can be carried in the pilot's flight bag and used in whatever plane they are flying. Patch Flyer instruments are perfect for Experimental and Part 103 aircraft. Instruments available are Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI), Air Speed Indicator (ASI), Turn Rate Indicator (TRI), Above Ground Level Altimeter (AGL), Inclinometer, Positive G Meter, Battery Condition, Voltmeter, Volt MiniMeter, Cylinder Head/Exhaust Gas Temperature (CHT/EGT), and Fuel Gauge.

"The more experience we gain, the more potential we've seen for innovation," said James Wiebe, Chief Executive Officer of Belite Aircraft/Electronics. "I've been able to apply my electronics background to my love of aviation. I want precision and reliability when it comes to how much fuel I have left or what turn rate I'm experiencing, but I want to stay simple and practical. These devises are fun and useful and will make flying much more enjoyable, more precise and perhaps even a little safer. They're extremely simple, lightweight and easy to install, so they're ideal for those of us who spend time flying 'around the patch' ... hence the name," Wiebe explained.

In only its second year since entering the marketplace, Belite Aircraft has established a reputation for aggressive innovation, having re-branded and extensively redesigned an existing Part 103 design, currently offering three versions in both factory-assembled and kit form—the Belite 254, the Superlite, and the Trike.
