Settled quietly next to the dazzling display of AveoFlash LED aircraft lights, AveoEngineering’s selection of aircraft cockpit rocker switches demonstrated their own brand of brilliance. Called RockRack, this innovative modular system allows you to set up your dash as you wish. The sleek curved modules lock together with a dovetail design, and are backlit with LEDs to enhance readability in both bright and overcast conditions.
Available since July 27, RockRack offers 21 different backlit icons, including master switches, each lighting circuit, fuel pump, alternator and weather. Each switch takes 20 amps, is available in 12 or 24 volts, and includes integrated resistors. They have a mechanical life of 150,000 cycles, so rock away.
A pack of eight switches goes for about $286 from Aircraft Spruce, and can also be installed in certified aircraft.
