Mike Petrucci has been enamored with aviation from a very early age. His father would take him to airshows and help foster his passion for flight. A close family friend, who was a pilot and operated a charter business, further encouraged his interest in flight. And a Young Eagles flight in 1998 was the final push Mike needed to know that he wanted to be a pilot.
Pilots have plenty of batteries to keep charged these days, from iPads to smartphones to portable ADS-B receivers, making backup batteries and cables essential equipment for the modern flight deck. Custom-designed by Sporty’s team of pilots, the new Flight Gear Battery Organizer and Flight Gear Roll Up Organizer have just enough room for these essentials without taking up too much space. They are the perfect addition to any pilot’s flight bag.
The updated Flight Gear Backup Battery is the pilot’s answer for charging mobile devices on the flight deck. This battery can charge multiple iPads and ADS-B receivers at the same time – even while those devices are in use. Now 20% smaller, the Flight Gear Battery Pack still packs 20,000mAh, enough to charge an iPad multiple times.
