Once you enjoy the luxury of the new Vista-Vent you will never be without it. Lets you fly cool and quiet in Summer (no open windows in flight) yet you can close it with one twist in cold weather. The Vista-Vent is light yet will not change shape, mounts firmly at four points to avoid cracking windows. Complete control of the cabin air is possible from a direct ram-air breeze to exhaust with a minimum of outside engine noise and no wind whistle. Kit includes instructions, mounting template and all hardware.
FAA Approved for use in Cessna 162. (See Documents tab for approval information)
Works great! Install needs to be carefully thought out, but not a problem.
Excellent service as always.
Have purchased these for two planes. Pretty easy install as long as you dont rush hole saw.
I installed these on my side by side to get rid of heat and dead air in the cab. worked great, easy to install
Easy to install, works great!
easy to install...for the best effect put it forward of the pilot seat so that the air can be directed on the pilot...also...the cut out is large so make sure the ring is centered so your drilled mounting holes are not too close to the edge of the opening
We have installed this on the copilot side and rear windows of a Cessna 182, which works on hot weather. Makes taxing much more friendly to the rest of the users. Lets a nice breeze in from the prop wash. Once in the air, if cool, you may close them . Some people like the air in their face, works for airsickness. ) Easy to install, go slow on the cutting, dont let the drill jam. Sand the cutout before you install the vent.
Works good but would be better if it had a small scoop when open to push in some air.
easy to install but be careful with cutter. Got used hardware with the first one that had stripped threads. had to go to hardware store to finish installation the next day.
