Needed accessory for IFR flying

  • By Jerry W from California on Monday, March 12, 2018
  • Pros: great tool to remember assigned or minimum altitudes
  • Cons: suction cut is a bit large and hides part of the altimeter
  • Review: Good product and a needed reminder when flying IFR, one less instruction to remember, my only wish is that the suction cup was smaller

helpful but not infallible

  • By Dan from Sioux City IA USA on Monday, September 22, 2008
  • Pros: many uses and no affordable alternatives
  • Cons: they will fall off, probably when you are flying
  • Review: I've used these for years. The screw allows them to adjust tension, so they don't start to slip over time. The suction cups won't stick well unless moistened first and they will eventually fall off, 1-6 months, in my experience. They are great for altitude bugs and any other gauge that doesn't rotate under the glass.

Cute Gizmo

  • By Suzanne from Virginia, USA on Thursday, November 20, 2008
  • Pros: Great for marking HDG or V-speeds on the traditional (steam gauge) cockpit. Easy on/off the dial face.
  • Cons: No multi-bug/color option. Not recommended to double-up the pointers.
  • Review: A light addition to your flight-bag.

A wise buy

  • By Lionel Lee from Watertown NY USA on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Review: They work as advertised but it turns out that a couple of my instruments were too small. Make sure you know the diameter of the instrument upon which you intend to mount the devices.

nice reminders

  • By Stephen from McMinnville OR USA on Monday, August 05, 2013
  • Review: They're a bit bulky, but certainly are handy for reminders as to altitude.

    Pleased to have them, as they are very sturdy and should last forever.

Does the job

  • By A Customer from Camp Hill PA USA on Wednesday, April 17, 2019
  • Review: Bought these for my IFR training. Work well & I still use them post-checkride. They do tend to pop off every-other flight, as others have mentioned that the cup plastic is too stiff. I would disagree with other reviews though, they are appropriately sized and do not cover the gauge.
