Fly with confidence and peace of mind —the Lifesaver™ gyro. Even if every other system in your aircraft's avionics panel goes dark, the Lifesaver powers on. The only attitude indicator with a self-contained battery backup, it delivers one full hour of emergency attitude reference. 1 hr of precious time to pull you through when trouble strikes and all other power fails. Optional slip indicator can be installed anytime. No removal of gyro necessary.
