SAM® is a solid-state instrument that displays attitude, altitude, airspeed, slip, vertical trend, and heading information to the pilot in an advanced, 2-inch format.
SAM delivers an easy-to-fit, compact design with selectable orientation (horizontal and vertical) like no other, ensuring a perfect fit within any panel. The unique two-screen display features high-definition graphics and extra-wide viewing angles. And at 1.6 pounds, SAM weighs less than the three instruments it’s designed to replace.
Pilots appreciate the intuitive interface, while installers love the flexible design.
