Note: Compass deviation card is included.
The Precision Vertical Card Compass for todays aircraft. It is a dry compass, designed to replace the float/liquid type compass -- no more leaking fluid or backward azimuth readings. It uses eddy current damping and as such has no overshoot. Consists of a 2" vertical rotating dial which is compared with a fixed miniature airplane (lubber line) to present the magnetic heading of the aircraft at all times. Heading information is more natural because the heading is read at the12 o'clock position and off the nose of the miniature aircraft.
The compass card rotates and presents all quadrants in their true relation to line of flight. Requires no power (except for lighting) to operate. Fully TSOd. Installed in many current production aircraft & helicopters. Size: 2-7/8"H x 2-3/8"W x 2-1/8"D. Wt. 0.6 lb. After installing compass must be compensated using standard compensation procedures. Also used in sailplanes.
Note: A mount is required for installation with these unit and is not included. Click here to see mounts webpage.
Such an improvement over the old whiskey compass. It is now actually a useful piece of equipment in the plane. In the 2 years I owned my plane, I had rarely ever looked at the ball compass, I use this all the time now for quick reference. Easy 10 minute install and alignment.
Not installed yet but looks fine. Well packaged.
Excellent product. The Grumman Airplane attaching bracket that I also purchased, worked perfectly and so easy to install.
Thank you for the great Customer Service. I called this order in right at 3pm, and it still got out the same day!! Plus the bracket was shipped from IL facility and the compass came from the GA facility! Awesome Customer Service!!!!
Seems to be working well. Really like the display. Makes it much easier to read in all conditions.
Works fine, easy install
Looks good, hopefully works good, hopefully last long time.
No Surprises. Very easy installation. Well worth the money.
PAI is fantastic to work with. I bought a 182 with an aged PAI-700. The company overhauled it to like new and operated flawlessly. If youre considering buying one, the factory stands behind the product. Love mine, and would buy another one should the occasion arise.
Yes, this product is tested with tail dragger tilt in mind from the manufacture and we have had no issues or returns because of it.
It can be, but it is not recommended due to the potential interference from other electrical units in the panel. If interference is detected, Mu-Metal (11-04483), can be used to shield the compass.
This compass is not intented to be mount to the panel and is a bracket mounted compass.
It will fit a 2-1/4" size hole.
We sell generic compass deviation cards part number 10-01659.
Power only needs to be attaching to light the gauge no power is needed for operation.
You will need to select the voltage version first but yes they all come with internal lighting.
You may purchase a compass deviation card such as part# 10-01659 and mount it somewhere near the compass.
You would encounter errors. In order for a compass to work as intended, you need to fly in the hemisphere the compass was designed for.
The PAI-700 is TSO'd for use in certified aircraft. There is no STC available, a logbook entry is all that is required.
