This revolutionary heat shield material is an ideal way to protect your aircraft interior and avionics from harmful heat and ultraviolet rays. In our tests, we found that using these heat shields held cabin temperatures to within a few degrees of the outside temperature, while unprotected aircraft interiors were dramatically hotter. Double-cell plastic bubble material is sandwiched between thin sheets of aluminum to produce an amazing 97% heat reflection. This seven-ply barrier effectively stops heat conduction, inhibits condensation and is non-toxic. A typical single engine aircraft requires less than an hour of time and only 3-4 yards of insulation. (We used about 3 yds. in a Warrior and about 4 yds. in a Cherokee Six—you may want to measure your aircraft's windows before ordering.) Simply cut to size with scissors and fit in place. Also great for wing sleeves for composite aircraft, auto windshields, RVs, etc. Sold by the yard, from 48 in. wide rolls.

Super easy to cut, stays in shape
I bought this for a DA42 for which I could not find any pre-cut ones. I squished these into place, traced the contours, cut them out, a few corrections here and there and they do a great job. Fastened them with a couple white velcro tabs.
Not as perfectly cut of course as they would be from factory, but they sure do a great job keeping the cockpit from turning into a sauna.

Heat Shielding
Good value. Simply take the time to use your old heat shielding to use as a cutting template and add about one half inch all the way around to make it fit. Put something light like a cardboard box to use as a weight to flatten the pieces that you cut out of the roll that it comes packaged as from Sporty's. This material is light, durable and malleable for easy placement inside your windscreen and passenger windows of your cabin. Pilot Mark.

Pros: Blocks sun and prying eyes. Cons: Does not hold its form very long so that after a few uses, it will no longer wedge into the window. Needs to be thicker and more flexible.

Pros: Cheaper than the pre-cut and sized ones. Works great on keeping the heat out! Easy to put in/take out. Durability has stood up to flight training applications. Cons: Takes time to get the proper cut and fit. Front window is very difficult to cut for the Skyhawk. Need some type of sticky fabric to adhere to the cut edges to dress it up a bit after cutting. Make sure you pay attention to the design in the material when cutting and placement, or it will look weird with one window shade lines in the vertical and the other beside it in the horizontal. Recommend the purchace of velcro pads to help keep the material in place.

Pros: Didn't have to use the Velcro, as was suggested--If measured properly, the material fits nicely into the window and stays. I just taped some newspapers together to make a pattern and it was very easy. The plane is nice and cool inside!
