OSHKOSH, Wis. (July 26, 2011) – Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS) today announced it has developed an LED replacement for its Beechcraft Baron and Bonanza landing and position lights. Designed in conjunction with Astronics LSI, these lighting units are available to replace existing landing, taxi, position and anti-collision lights.
With no glass filament to break, they are shock and vibration resistant while consuming significantly less energy. The solid state LED light engine provides high reliability with more than 8,000 hours mean time between failure, greatly reducing operational costs.
Available exclusively through Hawker Beechcraft Parts & Distribution, Baron and Bonanza operators can order the lights online, by phone at +1.888.727.4344, or through their local factory-owned or authorized service center.
