I saw a video recently whereas a secondary airspeed indicator was mounted so the instructor in the rear seat could view it without having to lean forward and look over the front seat shoulder. Any idea if there is an STC for this an if so how to go about finding it? Thanks.
I think I’d rather see the engine instruments from the back seat over the airspeed! Airspeed you can feel, but I don’t have as much trust in a student in the front noticing a spiked oil temp.
I have seen it though. They put it in the corners up top, one airspeed and one altitude. Good idea but a lot of work for something not really needed. I know it was posted on Facebook at some point. I’ll see if I can find it.
Not to mention that there's not much the average pilot gains in knowledge when you say "Bellanca Super Decathlon" versus "Champ". Hard to tell the difference between the symmetrical and non-symmetrical airfoils from a half-mile away...
That said, I usually just say "Red and White Citabria 9502S" so they can tell mine from the blue-and-white flight school Citabrias that go by "YellowJacket xxx" (Letourneau University flight school call sign).
