The Next Generation of Flight Instruments

"The compass advanced flight instruments are considered the world bests by the top PWCA pilots"


COMPASS' History and Philosophy

Passion, simplicity, excellence in performance, components and design; flight safety with reliable data and functions that allow flying with greater confidence and focus. These are the components from where COMPASS' alchemy is born.

Compass Italy was in fact created by pilots who have joined various professional skills:
Vincenzo Piazza: researcher in physics;
Deivi Gavriil: electronics expert;
Cesare De Pieri: entrepreneur

Compass was created because there was the urge to bring state-of-the-art technology and electronics to the free-flight world. Free-flight instruments with efficient colour displays, touch-enabled input, and high power processors of every pilot's dream. 
In the design of the first prototypes, multiple ideas for new features and graphics were gathered, evaluated, and tested with the invaluable help of several top-level pilots. An instrument without compromises was being crafted. COMPASS wanted to give nothing short of excellence to impose us as a leader in product quality. From all this, the C-Pilot PRO was born.



The guidelines that the Team COMPASS decided to follow for the realization of C-Pilot PRO, and thereafter for further projects were the following:

  • The instruments must be truly personal, fully customizable tools, that can adapt to the needs and tastes of each pilot, cut like a tailored suit.
  • They must be simple and intuitive to use because we feel that the essence of excellence is simplicity: there is no point having a thousand functions if their use is complicated.
  • No compromises in software and hardware would be accepted. The instruments must last for years. COMPASS achieve this target by providing free updates to all their devices.

The objectives have been achieved so that C-Pilot PRO was found to be the instrument of choice for several world champions (Aaron Durogati, Charles Cazeaux, Luca Donini, Jimmy Pacher and many others ...), people that cannot accept compromises.

Experience with the C-Pilot PRO and the newer C-Pilot EVO led COMPASS to the design of the Easy Pilot, a device that while being more affordable, retains almost all of the characteristics of C-Pilot PRO and the same philosophy.
At the same time, COMPASS also developed the XC-Pilot, for those who need a smaller size (hang gliders and pilots who love to reduced weight and dimensions) with the same features of the C-Pilot EVO.

The COMPASS' team members are artisans who care for each instrument and uses the best components with no compromises. At the same time, they care for each pilot.
