This new pitot Tube is lighter than any other similar product in the market

Belite Electronics introduces aerodynamic lightweight pitot tube

Belite Aircraft is now offering an aerodynamic non-heated pitot tube designed for experimental, light sport (with manufacturer approval) and ultralight aircraft applications.

This new pitot Tube is lighter than any other similar product in the market because it is manufactured out of ABS plastic and subsequently stiffened with an internal aluminum liner. The unit then receives a coat of UV resistant paint.

Weighing in at 45 grams (1.6 ounces), this new product is priced at $149. Two mounting bases are available: one is compatible with leading edge (rounded) installations, and the other is compatible with flat installtions, such as the underside of a wing. Custom mounts are also available.

The unit is not heated, and is designed for VFR use. It does not have a static port.

"The production of this unit is unique," said James Wiebe, Belite CEO. "We produce them on our new 3D printer. This lets us get the shape just right, while reducing all of the tooling costs out of the equation. Production cost savings are passed on to the customer."

This new product is shipping from Belite in August.
