Overview

Winter has an excellent reputation as a quality manufacturer of aircraft instruments.  With all the high tech devices in sailplanes these days, having a reliable mechanical variometer makes sense.  It will continue to work perfectly regardless of the status of your glider battery and fuses.  Winter is also known for their airspeed indicators, MacCready speed-to-fly rings, altimeters, barographs and accessories for all those products.

The Company
Flight instruments must ensure a safe flight and afford the pilot the opportunity of exploiting the capabilities of his aircraft to the fullest.  The requirement placed on instruments of this nature in regard to measuring accuracy, insensitivity to outside influences (vibration, acceleration, fluctuations in temperature, etc.) and operational reliability are stringent in the extreme

This page will give you an overview of the range of flight instruments Winter produces.  

Special Instrument Dial Colors
In addition to the standard and classy white on black instrument dials, Winter offers light ivory and anodized aluminum colors an option for many of their instruments.  The light ivory dials (with black markings and red and black pointers) give the instruments a classic look that looks fantastic in vintage sailplanes.  Below is a photo of the ivory dials installed in the panel of a Spalinger sailplane that is being worked on by Mike Redman at RAW Fabrication, LLC.  Click on the image to view a larger version. There is a $80 extra charge for the ivory dials for most instruments, and $50 for the W-1115 QM III bank indicator shown in the bottom center of the photo.  The upgrade part number is W-8028.
