Through its growing installed base of engine monitors, AOA systems, and now EFIS displays, Advanced is proud of the solid reputation it has earned.

AirGizmos is Mike Schipper, Max Probasco, Steve Ruzic, and Todd Agold. We're just four airplane fanatics with a dream to build way cool aviation products. AirGizmos™ was started after our random brainstorming sessions started turning into real products. We started by making a mount for my portable GPS so it would look better in my RV-9A. We liked it so much, and got so much positive feedback that we decided we'd manufacture a bunch and make them available to other airplane nuts. Our goal is to continue turning our creative ideas into insanely cool products, and hopefully make enough money to buy more 100LL.
