SAM 2-inch Standby Attitude Module

Entirely self-contained, SAM is a solid-state instrument that provides attitude, altitude, airspeed and slip information to the pilot during normal operation or in the case of primary instrument failure.

SAM® is a solid-state instrument that displays attitude, altitude, airspeed, slip, vertical trend, and heading information to the pilot in an advanced, 2-inch format.

SAM delivers an easy-to-fit, compact design with selectable orientation (horizontal and vertical) like no other, ensuring a perfect fit within any panel. The unique two-screen display features high-definition graphics and extra-wide viewing angles. And at 1.6 pounds, SAM weighs less than the three instruments it’s designed to replace.

Pilots appreciate the intuitive interface, while installers love the flexible design.
