Company Summary

Skywriter shows key instruments on a transparent pane in the pilot's forward view , relieving him of constant reference to instruments and keeping his eyes on the sky ahead of him. Skywriter replaces $300,000 instruments with a portable $5000 system. A study of aircraft accidents concluded that 61% could have been avoided with a HUD in the cockpit. Skywriter delivers that margin of safety at a price any aircraft owner can afford.
