Windshield with UV/IR Protection (Solar Tinting)

Recommended Posts


I thought I would share this information.  Apparently, LP Aero is the designated replacement windshield maker for the CTSW.  They have a version of their windshield that offers more protection:

"This is the 7220A windshield in UV/Infrared Blocking Solar Gray Tint.  Your cost will be $1590.00 plus packing and shipping."

Of course, the protection is less important for a high-wing than a low-wing airplane.  I believe that the installation is quite difficult, though---costing on the order of $2k-$3k.  So, if I ever have a windshield strike, this will be my replacement.  Until then, I will live with the plain windshield without the solar tinting.
