The Blue Sky Story

I have owned and flown a Grumman Cheetah since 1979.  Since my first flight, I have recognized that the exceptional visibility from the cockpit had a downside.  Often when operating in hot, hazy, or sunny conditions, the heat and sun created an uncomfortable flying situation.

Over many years, I tried a variety of screening devices with little satisfaction.  In 1991 I developed a workable sun visor which I used for almost eight years.  In 1999 I decided to see if I could produce a better design which would both reduce the heat and increase the visibility under the hot and hazy conditions we often encounter while flying.

I started Blue Sky Sun Visors in 2000 to provide a reasonably priced solution to other owners of the single-engine versions of the AA1x, AA5x, and AG5B line of aircraft.

I designed Blue Sky Sun Visors with many of the same criteria used in the development of our line of aircraft, i.e., a maximum of functionality, durability, simplicity, and strength with a minimum of weight.

These criteria resulted in a product which can be installed in a matter of minutes with no modifications to the airframe, a product which reduces the fatigue of eye strain due to bright sky conditions, improved visibility of outside objects under hazy conditions, and heat caused by sun striking front seat occupants whether coming from the front or side.

Because of the simplicity of installation and removal, we consider our visors to be a portable unit.

Installation and Care Instructions

Blue Sky Sun Visors are unique because virtually anyone can install and maintain our sun visors with a Phillips screwdriver and a small adjustable wrench.
There is no need to hire a mechanic to install our visors if you know which way to turn a screwdriver. Rather than a “one size fits all” design used by other companies, our Sun Visors were designed specifically for Grumman single engine aircraft.
We consider our sun visors to be a portable device much like a yoke mounted GPS mount. A printable version of the installation instructions can be obtained by clicking on the following link: BlueSkyvisorGrummanInstallGuide
