Jet Shades to Exhibit Sun Protective Cockpit Panels for Pilots at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh
Jupiter, Florida, July 8, 2018 – Jet Shades, the exclusive manufacturer of tinted cockpit window panels, has announced it will be exhibiting at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh show July 23-29, 2018. At booth #2111 in Hangar B, Jet Shades will showcase a selection of its solutions that protect pilots from heat, glare and ultraviolet rays while flying that fit almost every private aircraft model.

Jet Shades are “push-in-place” tinted window panels made to cover the top portion of the windshield and fill the cockpit side windows completely for total pilot protection. The patent-pending design offers numerous benefits to pilots and crew, including:
• Protection from 99% of harmful ultraviolet radiation that causes skin cancer
• A consistently cool and comfortable cockpit no matter the temperature outside
• Elimination of more than 80% of sun glare for optimal instrument visibility and reduced eye strain and fatigue

The lightweight panels are made from optical-quality polycarbonate, which is virtually unbreakable and will not shatter or scratch like acrylic or glass. Through a proprietary process, Jet Shades treats the polycarbonate to block infrared waves, ultraviolet waves, visible light, and solar energy.

“AirVenture is one of the world’s premier aviation events for those looking for innovative products that will transform the future of flight, and I’m excited to bring this industry-first pilot protection to share with all of the aviation enthusiasts there,” said Kevin Duggan, Founder of Jet Shades.

With their flexible design, the Jet Shades panels simply push into place into the window trim and are secured by friction tabs for a snug fit, even in severe turbulence. Since no clips or other fasteners are needed, the panels can be quickly and easily installed and removed, even during flight when autopilot is engaged.

Panels are available for almost any aircraft, including jets, turbo props, props, experimental/homebuilt planes, helicopters, and more. Prices start at $499 for a cockpit set. Full sets that include panels for cabin windows can also be purchased. The products can be ordered directly from or from authorized dealers.

About Jet Shades
Jet Shades was founded by an engineer and private pilot who was always hot in the cockpit and wrestled with sun glare. His solution was to develop a tinted panel that is quickly installed and easily removed from inside the existing window opening. The U.S.-manufactured panels can be made to fit most aircraft cockpit windows. For more information, visit
