Air Shunt Instruments protests the evaluation of its proposal and the award of a contract to InAir
Aviation Services under request for proposals (RFP) No.
A former Panamanian diplomat, he operated an air transport business in Panama called Inair
, which sometimes handled weapons deliveries and other clandestine operations for the C.I.A., a line of inquiry that was censored out of the trial.

InAir's Lift Reserve Indicator (LRI) was one of the first AoA options on the market, and is largely similar to Alpha's mechanical system, with a mechanical indicator and no flap position correction.
InAir's owner, Al Mojzisik, tells us he's had a letter from the FAA similar to Alpha for over 10 years, so this system is a minor alteration.
For simply a mechanical system, InAir is cheaper, but their gauge won't fit a standard instrument hole if you don't want it on the glareshield.
InAir Instruments, LLC, of Westerville, Ohio, seems to be the go-getter in the LRI business.
Although improved and cosmetically different, the InAir is the same unit Aviation Consumer installed in its Mooney 201 nearly 20 years ago.
The Alpha Systems AoA was a virtual duplicate of the InAir Instruments LRI system until the gauges were revamped by Mark Korin, of DepotStar, Inc., based in Ramsey, Minnesota.
A pilot, he has thought through all of the problems and anomalies of (he original Huntington product and was brought into the business by then-partners Jim Huntington and Bill Geipel to design a graphics display for the unit.(Jim Huntington later partnered with Al Mojzisik, of InAir, and Geipel partnered with Korin, but both of these partnerships have since dissolved.)
