Meet the Inventor
Belite Electronics was founded and is led by James Wiebe. For 30 years James has been a pioneer and leader in high technology. In 2001 he founded WiebeTech, an industry leading concern in the area of digital forensics, now part of CRU, Inc.
James and his wife, Kathy, founded Belite Aircraft and Belite Electronics in 2009. James, an avid pilot, has combined his passion for flying with his creativity and technical expertise to advance ultralight flying design and related electronics. He has developed new and breakthrough methods for lightweight aircraft design and manufacturing. He has invented and engineered a growing range of lightweight and sophisticated avionics suited to Belite aircraft and other sport and experimental aircraft.
FAR 103 is the Mother of Invention
“By sheer necessity we needed to develop a new class of avionics that are lightweight, low energy, powerful, reliable and accurate. I’ve seen this same type of challenge (and opportunity) in many tech fields over the years. Necessity has become the mother of inventing supremely supple and sophisticated instruments that are digitally based, moving beyond the clunky (and heavy) analog instrumentation options of the past 70 years.”
