Pilots are always in search of the perfect cockpit light. Most have tried one form or another of the police-style Maglight, the hat brim light, the map light, the regular red lens light, and everything in between. But the most useful lights are those that integrate seamlessly.
Wicks Aircraft Supply is now offering a lighted pen, which is fits the multitasker bill perfectly. It shines light from the writing portion of the device, putting it exactly where you need to write every time. It can also be used independently of the ink, making it a small pinpoint light when needed, as well.
The new Aviator Light Pen is $9.99 and can be ordered directly from Wicks.
