How Wingbug Works

Today all important flight information is displayed on the hard-mounted instrumentation in your cockpit or on tablets connected to hard mounted equipment. Created by Aviators for Aviators, the WingBug is a WiFi-enabled Pitot Static ADAHRS system that is personal, portable, affordable and light-weight with recording capabilities. It is a fully self-encompassed device that is wireless and easily mountable to any aircraft, using a variety of proven mounting methods. It’s internal battery is rechargeable and provides a 12 hour battery life.

(NOTE: For pilot and passenger safety, this is not a tablet GPS created ground speed based instrument simulation. Your indicated airspeed is obtained and displayed with a Pitot Static system which is critical to safe aircraft maneuvering. This provides the added benefit of true and accurate flight instrument redundancy, should a primary system fail.)

Carry your cockpit instruments in the palm of your hands with WingBug’s interactive iPad application (available in the Apple Play Store) independently displaying information, like Airspeed, Artificial Horizon, Altitude, Turn Coordination, Magnetic Compass, and Vertical Speed Indicator. Additional situational awareness is enhanced with AOA (Angle of Attack), Side Slip/Skid indicators and ADS-B In capabilities.

The recordable backup pitot static system provides you the ability to review your true flight data anytime and compare your flights effortlessly. This WingBug Precision Measuring Device with the WingBug application, is the only true portable stand alone pitot static device available anywhere.
