Made with heat resistant silicon

Sporty's® developed this simple silicon disc with a suction cup on the back to allow you to practice instrument flying with a "failed instrument" (partial panel) and also to cover an instrument that actually fails in flight. Failed instruments, especially the attitude indicator, are dangerous because it is difficult to ignore their erroneous presentation which can lead to loss of control. Provides an easy and inexpensive way to practice any combination of instrument failures and very important when a real failure occurs. Measures 3 1/8 in. dia. Extra thick suction cup holds fast to any instrument gauge. A must for all pilots.

good quality
haven't used them yet but they are made of fairly thick rubber and feel like good quality. I imagine I'll be able to use these for a long time after I get my instrument rating and need additional partial panel practice. They are good size too and should easily cover the entire instrument.

Pros: Accomplishes the essential - removing the distracting erroneous gage from scan. Cons: I'd prefer red, orange, or yellow in order to highlight the fact the gage is indeed inoperative.

Everybody needs some of these. If you have an instrument failure, you can take it out of your scan very easily. I had to keep an eye on my instructors - they kept trying to walk off with them!

Pros: Sure beat notebook paper stuck over the face of the instrument. Cons: Got to remember to wet the suction cup really well or may lose adhesion.
