When will I receive my order?

Select: Zone Rate
Equal to or Less than 1kg going to USA or Canada = $8.33 “ZONE RATE.” Orders are sent via Canada Post Small Packets mail, or better service if you spend over $150, which typically takes about 12-14 business days to arrive.

Flat Rate
Flat rate is sent by Canada Post Xpress Post, in North America. Outside North America this shipping option will have the package delivered by regular post. Expect 6-8 weeks for delivery for world-wide orders.
Customers are responsible for any brokerage fees and local taxes incurred, which usually do not apply with postal service freight. Goods are shipped FOB our warehouse in Orillia, Ontario Canada.

Since we’re the manufacturer of the Plane Sights line, many in stock items are shipped the same day, excluding weekends and Canadian holidays. We deliver most of these orders by bike to the post office (or UPS/Fedex for our dealers) at about 4pm EST every day. Out of stock items may take up to two weeks to ship.

CONTACT US if you wish to have your order sent via your courier account or some other way.

Do you offer dealer/reseller discounted pricing?

YES, we offer a fair discount with a low minimum order. Plus we sell through various wholesalers which may be more economical for pilot stores to consolidate orders from. But we’re always looking to expand our network of local pilot supply stores. Please tell us about your store and contact us for the details of our discount.

Will Plane Sights fade in the sun?

If I leave my pitot heat on will your covers melt or burn?

Temp Range
The fabric pitot covers (Angled, Universal, Blade & DA42/PC12) are not high temperature or flame rated. However, the Sunbrella fabric and florescent green binding are made from acrylic fibers (eg.made from oil) so in theory, (and as we’ve been told, in practice) they melt well.

In terms of outdoor environmental concerns we have customers that use them in the heat of the desert and extreme cold of Alaska.
The standard PVC plugs (3/4″, 5/8″ and Light Sport) are rated for (107*C/225*F). Plus we offer special order high temp (230*C/446*F) plugs in virtually any diameter and length.

We also offer a high temp Kevlar probe cover by special order.
