Description
 
Forgetting to remove a faded, dull and worn-out pitot tube cover can jeopardize the safety of you and your passengers. When cold weather prevents you from installing your pinch-and-insert style blade pitot cover, ice and snow can contaminate your pitot system. Some blade pitot covers also cause damage to paint when the sleve is being forced on and off.

The highly conspicuous and very durable Plane Sights Blade Pitot Cover is a perfect fit for any aircraft with a blade-type pitot tube or Piper gear extension mast. Properly installed, its guaranteed not to blow off, fade in the sun or wear out for at least two years. Fits Piper, Katana, some Rockwell, late Grumman, Lake 250, and all other aircraft with a blade-type pitot tube.

Blade Pitot Cover August 11, 2016
Reviewer: Fred Stahl from Frederick, MD United States  
An online photo of this product caught my attention, so for the price I figured I'd try it out as a replacement for the traditional "hard" plastic Piper pitot mast cover I've used for many years.  My initial impression is that the materials and construction are rugged and well made, and the cover should last a long time.  The combination Velcro and bungee loop to secure the cover to the pitot mast is clever, and the connection seems very secure.  Since the cover itself is fabric (rather than hard plastic), I hope that water doesn't seep in, pool, and work its way into the pitot-static plumbing.  In the past I've actually had this problem with hard plastic covers, so am always looking for a better mast cover.  But on first impression, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
