James Wiebe, CEO of Belite Aircraft, has another new venture. Wiebe has started Belite Electronics, offering avionics suited for experimental and homebuilt aircraft.
The individual instruments weigh half an ounce and are designed to fit into the instrument panels of the planes.
The line is called the Patch Flyer. Many of the instruments can be carried in the pilot’s flight bag.
Instruments in the line include a vertical speed indicator, air speed indicator, turn-rate indicator, above ground level altimeter, inclinometer, positive G meter, battery condition voltmeter, volt minimeter, cylinder head/exhaust gas temperature gauge and a fuel gauge.
Wiebe is unveiling the line at the Sun ‘N Fun Fly-In and Expo at Lakeland, Fla. The show runs April 13 to 18 at the Linder Regional Airport.
He will also have the Belite Superlite aircraft on display. He has made several modifications to the tricycle gear version of the aircraft.
