Scheyden Precision Eyewear recently added two new models to its product lineup. The Albatross and the Mustang add to Scheyden’s extensive aviation-minded offerings.
According to the company, the Albatross model is similar to classic aviators and will suit any face type. The Mustang model is a larger frame, better suited to medium to large faces, a Scheyden representative said.
Both styles bridge the gap between classic thin-framed sunglasses and newer fashion glasses, meaning they have an appeal beyond the cockpit, but still fit well behind a headset.
Lens options include plastic polymer (CR39), mineral glass, and polarization. The glasses retail between $299 and $329.

A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
