Rosen Sun Visors

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

My ultravisors are a little longer than the originals and shorter than the Rosens.  The perfect size IMHO.

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

You should have an A&P mechanic install these. Unless you are one, this will be an illegal installation of sun visors. Who will submit the paperwork to the FAA. Just let the mechanics do their jobs. This is what they do all day long.

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

In referring to the A.R.F.C. visors, The Plane Plastics website <http://planeplastics.com/visors_cessna.asp> states, "These visors use the original bracketing. Just remove the old sun visor and replace it with a new FAA/PMA'd tinted sun visor.

All necessary paperwork and hardware are supplied as per FAR 43.9(a). Installation only requires a screwdriver and may be installed by the pilot or owner."

The visor kit includes a sticker to be affixed to the aircraft maintenance records (log) with a line for the installer's signature. According to the sticker, this may be either an A&P mechanic's signature and certificate number OR aircraft owner/pilot's signature and certficate number.

I discussed the installation with both my mechanic (an I.A.) and the local FSDO inspector, and both agreed that the work could legally be performed by me and the maintenance records for return to service signed by me with my pilot certificate number (I'm not an A&P).

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

Stan makes a strong case. 

I performed the work with the full knowlege of the IA and he had no problem with what I was doing.  No changes to any structural member was done.

As far the reflection concern discussed above, I'm getting use to it and positioning the visor as needed.  I do not like seeing my shirt in the visor while looking out the window. When that happens I move the visor so it is less troublesome or use it as a half visor by positioning it forward where there is no reflection.

The most benefit I experience is when flying toward the sun just before sunset.  I haven't see those half visors yet, but they sound like an good design.

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

I used to think that sunglasses were a better option than sun visors, until it occured to me that in the cockpit I'm really trying to block the sun and I'm not trying to darken my work environment (the cockpit).  Sunglasses darken everything including the instruments I need to read.  Additionally, eyes will adjust (the pupil dialates) when wearing sunglasses, so I lose some of the shading effect.

I installed Rosen visors on my C172 and I don't wear my sunglasses until I exit the plane.

Try some Saringetti Sunglasses.  They are graduated.  Dark at the top and lighter as you look lower through them.
I have had a pair since 1990.  They work very well.

Re: Rosen Sun Visors

I have a set of graduated sunglasses that I keep for those instances when I'm flying other aircraft.  I guess it's just personal preference.  I prefer not to peer out the bottom of the sunglasses at my instruments or be momemtarily assaulted by sunlight through the bottom and sides of the sunglasses when (for example) I tilt my head to look at the OAT gauge mounted on the venttube.  Of course, I'm not solving a big problem, as it's not all that different to use graduated lens instead of the visors  ...

And at the rate I lose sunglasses, I could have purchased the visors.
