AeroLED Sunspot approved for certificated aircraft
Pilots and owners of certificated aircraft can now install the AeroLED Sunspot 36HX landing light, thanks to an FAA parts manufacturer approval (PMA). The company says a blanket supplemental type certificate (STC) is on the way. According to AeroLEDs, the 36HX will last 50,000 hours, meaning it will likely be the last landing light you ever buy. And at 3,600 lumens, it’s significantly brighter than a standard bulb. A pulse feature is also available, either in a multi-light setup or as a single light. Each 36HX retails for $449.
