Jet Shades was founded by an engineer and private pilot who was always hot in the cockpit and wrestled with sun glare on him and on the instruments in the hot Florida sun.  When he was able to adjust the cockpit temperature to become comfortable, the passengers were too cold, and the sun glare persisted.

FAA regulations for aircraft cockpit windows mandate light transmission levels, which limits a manufacturer’s ability to add tinting to windows.  Stick on films and suction cups shades have been proven to damage windows.  Clearly, a new concept was needed that would provide the shade flight crews needed, without altering the cockpit windows.  The solution was to develop a quickly installed and easily removable tinted window panel inside the existing window opening.  After considerable research, numerous prototypes, and flight testing, Jet Shades were born.

Jet Shades can be made to fit most aircraft cockpit windows where there is a small recess of the window into the trim of the aircraft.  If you don’t see your aircraft on our site, please contact us to inquire about your aircraft.  Jet Shades are manufactured in the U.S.  Click Here to see all the aircraft you can purchase Jet-Shades for.
