An Innovative Solution to Hot, Sunny, Cessna 172 Cockpits
Unlike foil aircraft sun shades, Jet Shades are removable tinted window panels and visors designed to block harmful UV and sun glare in your aircraft cockpit both DURING FLIGHT & WHILE PARKED!
Inspired by an engineer and private pilot who was always hot in the cockpit and wrestled with sun glare on him and the instrument panel in the hot Florida sun, Jet Shades solve the problem of hot, sunny cockpits that are uncomfortable for both pilot and passengers.

Jet Shades Cessna 172 Purchase Options
- Front Windshield. Jet Shades Front Windshield inserts into the top portion of your 172 front windshield. Your Jet Shade will provide a more comfortable piloting experience by providing cooler cockpit temperatures, reduced fatigue, reduced eye strain and more.
- Rear Window. (2 Pieces) Jet Shades rear windshield covers both rear windshield of your 172 windshield to prevent harmful sunlight heat, UV, and glare entering into your aircraft. This prevents sunlight from heating the cargo area and as well as the entire aircraft. Testing shows that Jet Shades in rear windshield lower temperatures by 15 Degrees Fahrenheit in the cargo area!
- Cockpit Doors & Passenger Windows (4 Pieces) While the high wing provides some protection from the sun on the cockpit door window, there are times when sunlight penetrates the door windows allowing heat and glare to enter the cockpit making it difficult to read instruments. Jet Shades cockpit doors (2) insert into the cockpit door windows securely to fill the entire cockpit door window and provide protection from harmful sunlight heat, UV, and glare entering into your aircraft. Jet Shades in your passenger windows (2) help lower the temperature of the aircraft by keeping heat from entering the aircraft through the passenger windows.
