Display S

AIR Glide – Display S – Small device, large screen

Our smallest Display (“Size S”) is the ideal choice for display of variometer related information. Display S features variometer indication, speed-to-fly indication, backup navigation, traffic awareness, voice alerts, and an artificial horizon display. It is the easiest and most affordable entry to the AIR Glide product line.

AIR Glide Display S

The design – a whole new approach

The new design concept integrates a big 2.7″ display into a standard 2,25″ panel cutout. The device is installed from the front of the panel. It is only marginally bigger than a standard 2.25″ device and can be easily installed into any existing cockpit.

AIR Glide Display S Display


The very bright display depicts all necessary information clearly arranged and bigger than common variometers do. The display utilizes special anti-reflection technology making it perfectly readable in *any* lighting condition.Its readability is comparable to printed paper, making mechanical pointers obsolete. Without mechanical pointers the displayed content can be made bigger and it is possible to suit specific display requirements more flexibly.

AIR Glide Display S

Packed with features

Display S features a very easy to read variometer page. Additionally it features speed-to-fly indication, backup-navigation, a dedicated traffic display page, and a sophisticated audio and voice messaging system that alerts the pilot in natural voice if there are possible dangers. An attitude and heading indicator (AHI) with true-airspeed indicator is included as well.

Comprehensive yet easy to use

AIR Glide Display S contains many easy to use functions that support the pilot and reduce workload effectively.

AIR Glide Display S Nav


The navigation function gives you directions to airports or turnpoints from the integrated database. Own waypoint data can be imported and used as well.

A very accurate final glide computer calculates your glidepath based on wind, aircraft-polar, bugs, and current total-energy.

The built in compass-sensor delivers exact true heading information. The 3D-compass is fully compensated and has no compass errors. The navigation page is simple to use and perfect as a backup or for basic navigation.

Variometer and wind-indicator

Vario, netto-vario and wind are accurately computed in realtime with data from high tech sensors. A big black arrow-indicator shows the current vario value. Vertical airmass movement is shown as a blue circle, average climb as a smaller green arrow. Four freely configurable Info-Boxes show desired values.

The wind-arrow depicts the accurate live-wind. The built-in three-dimensional compass always aligns the wind angle perfectly to the roll-axis of the aircraft. This makes the wind arrow turn smoothly, even at high turn-rates.

AIR Glide Display S traffic

Traffic and Alerts

AIR Glide Display S communicates with FLARM® compatible devices. Traffic information is shown on a special radar screen.

If a dangerous traffic situation is imminent, AIR Glide Display S warns in clear natural voice: warning. glider, 12 o’clock, high.



AIR Glide Display S Horizon

Attitude and Airspeed Indicator

AIR Glide Display S contains an attitude and heading indicator. The horizon can be of help in dangerous situations that may occur for example when there is unpredicted cloud development during wave-flights. The horizon is a state of the art, solid state precise instrument and can be compared to expensive certified solutions. It contains a tamper-proof locking mechanism for competitions.

AIR Glide Display S also features an accurate airspeed indicator with TAS-indication as well as an accurate altimeter.

AIR Glide Display S Audio

Voice Messages

A voice engine gives relevant information and alert messages in natural voice. Voice messages are only given in dangerous or relevant situations. They seamlessly enhance the pilot’s workflow and do not distract. Up to two speakers can be connected to the vario, this makes future implementations of directional voice-alerts possible.

Through integrated sensors AIR Glide Display S detects battery voltage, gear-state, flap-state, speedbrake-state and many other paramters. If desired the voice system actively warns of unwanted configurations.

IGC-Logger and USB

Flights from from a connected AIR Glide sensor unit can be downloaded directly using a USB-Stick. A panelmount USB-cable is included in delivery.

It is possible to read-out IGC-files, declare tasks, import user files, update system software or change settings with the USB-stick.
