Approved for FAA Certified Part 23 Aircraft and Part 27 and 29 Rotorcraft
All iFDR Panel Mounts from Guardian Avionics are approved for installation in certified aircraft and rotorcraft under 14 CFR Part 23, 27 and 29 as "Non-Required Safety Enhancing Equipment" (NORSEE) as outlined in FAA memorandum number PS-AIR-21.8-1602. Mounts and power supplies may be installed as a minor alteration.
Designed with General Aviation in mind
Please refer to Guardian Avionics NORSEE Letter of Authorization.
The iFDR Panel Mount was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPhone in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels. Built-in ports for the Apple Lightning plug and a 3.5mm audio cable help keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.
Keep it cool
As they are being used, iPhones generate heat that can affect performance -- resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The iFDR Panel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8" tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPad or iPhone to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.
The iFDR Panel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The iFDR Panel Mount requires a 6.253" long and 3.442" high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
Mount in Automobiles, Boats, RVs, and Displays Too!
Though the iFDR Panel Mount was designed for use in aircraft, the durable construction and well-designed flush mount can be used easily for a wide variety of applications -- wherever there is a flat surface!
