Did you know that spending just one hour behind the controls at 30,000 feet is the equivalent of 20 minutes in a tanning bed? And, it can be even higher when flying over thick clouds and snow fields, which can reflect UV radiation!This extended exposure puts pilots at increased risk of melanoma and skin cancer. Blocking unhealthy UV is strongly suggested.
How Jet Shades Protects Pilots & Passengers From Harmful UV
Total Pilot Protection
Jet Shades block 99.9% UV transmission, protecting pilots from dangerous UV radiation. Reduces eye strain and pilot fatigue caused by sun exposure in cockpits. Blocks heat & glare for cool, comfortable flights in the cockpit.
Passengers Fly Cool and Comfortable
Jet Shades window panels give your passengers the freedom to enjoy the view without squinting or eye fatigue. Rides are cooler and comfortable for passengers allowing them to enjoy the scenery easily.
The Dangers of UV & Radiation for Pilots in the Cockpit
Are you at risk because of chronic exposure to UV radiation and sun glare?
Sun glare can seriously compromise an aviator’s ability to clearly see instrument panels, especially during critical flight operations where there is less time to react. Because life-threatening situations can develop in an instant, reducing glare on cockpit instrumentation can protect pilots from flash-blindness and temporary visual impairment caused during high sun glare situations.
Recent research indicates that pilots face twice the risk of skin cancer compared with the general population. For every additional 3,000 feet of altitude above sea level, there is a 15% increase in intensity of UV radiation. Jet Shades block 99.9% UV radiation and 70% glare - providing instant relief from solar energy.
