AIR Glide sensor unit [T276] €1,499.00

The heart of every AIR Glide installation.
The sensor unit contains all sensors and an IGC certified flight recorder.
Computes vario, airspeed, instantaneous wind, air mass movement, GPS-Position, magnetic heading and attitude.

The AIR Glide sensor unit is a sophisticated sensor platform, that integrates 14 different sensors and a fully IGC certified flight recorder in a compact device.
With a combination of 14 sensors, the relative air-mass movement and wind arround the aircraft is measured in real time.
Independent of his flight direction the pilot sees real time air-mass and wind data updated repeatedly every second.

The sensor unit contains 3D accelerometers, 3D rate gyros, 3D compass sensors, and a highly accurate GPS receiver.
This makes the Sensor Unit a full-scale inertial measurement unit.
These sensors, combined with 4 pressure sensors for cabin-, TE-, static-, and dynamic pressure, generate a vast amount of data that is processed in advanced sensor fusion algorithms to compute the aircrafts current attitude, speed, position, and to determine current wind and vertical airmass movement.

The Average Variometer changes in pressure between static pressure, asbolute pressure and TE-pressure, sometimes acceleration is also used.

The permanent computation of wind direction and strength (we call this "live wind") helps pilots interpret their surroundings in a new way.
You can see how wind becomes weaker or still in the center of lift and how air flows into and out of a thermal.
Local wind systems in mountainous regions can be easily discovered.

The vertical airmass information (VAM) offers a gust independent view on the current vertical airflow, easier to interpret and less prone to wrong indications than average netto variometer signals.
