Ultra offers a number of aircraft instrumentation products for the general aviation and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) markets, from engine power management systems to flight instrumentation. Ultra provides hand control systems, grips and joysticks for use in aircraft cockpits and for training and simulation applications. 

Cockpit and ground station equipment and lighting solutions

Ultra supplies a range of rugged, ergonomic human machine interface equipment for cockpit, loadmaster and UAV crew stations. Cost-effective solutions with high reliability and proven performance are in service with military and civil operators around the world.

Ultra has provided internal and external aircraft lighting in both civil and military markets. In the cockpit, these include high visibility indicators, wander lamps, panel illumination and night vision goggle compatible indicators. Externally, the range includes formation lights, landing/taxi lights and external safety-critical indicators. All lighting solutions are designed for high reliability use, maximising modern technologies and are fully qualified for their operational environment using Ultra’s in-house photometry facilities.

Aircraft engine management systems and instrument solutions

Ultra offers a complete range of digital engine instrumentation which provides the cockpit with a more modern look than traditional analogue instruments at less than half the cost of the average flat panel display. Ultra’s instruments are ideal for retrofit markets as they eliminate the cost associated with panel modification, necessary when installing flat panel displays. These instruments contain software which has been audited to DO-178B (level C) and the whole instrument has been environmentally tested to DO-160D to support TSO certification.

Ultra’s instruments have been installed in many types of aircraft including general aviation, business jet, helicopter and military trainer platforms as standard OEM equipment.

Ultra’s AuRACLE engine management systems provide discerning pilots with primary engine management, compatible with 95% of all single and twin-engined general aviation aircraft. Cockpit resource management is improved by alerting pilots to critical engine conditions including fuel data, exhaust gas temperature and cylinder head temperature. Each unit is configured to the respective airframe and engine combination. All versions of the AuRACLE aircraft engine monitor feature a revolutionary glass panel MFD display which mimics analogue aircraft gauges and is capable of replacing them. Ultra’s versatile multi-function flight instruments provide intuitive access to all critical engine data at a glance. In addition, they are supplementary type certificated for primary operation
