GENEVA, Switzerland, May 20, 2014 – BLR Aerospace has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval of its LED Lighting System for installation on King Air 90s equipped with BLR Winglet Systems. BLR representatives are available to discuss and take orders for LED Lighting Systems, Winglet Systems and other performance-enhancing products during the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, Exhibit No.2606, May 20-22 in Geneva.
The FAA-certified advanced light-emitting diode (LED) system is now available for Beechcraft King Air 90s, King Air 200s, King Air 200GTs, King Air 250s, and King Air 300s equipped with BLR Winglet Systems. LED Lighting System upgrades from BLR are a lightweight, high-performance retrofit, providing significant benefits over standard incandescent lights, including increased reliability, reduced power consumption, high illumination and long life.
“The LEDs are far more reliable than incandescent lighting systems and are an excellent option, especially for pilots who are sensitive to flight cancellations due to bulb failure,” said Dave Marone, BLR’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Improved mission readiness, reduced weight, and a modernized aircraft are important benefits.”
The LED System complements Winglet Systems that are reducing drag, improving runway performance and improving fuel economy on more than 650 King Airs worldwide. BLR LED lights are optional upgrades and available for most new BLR King Air 90/200/300 Winglet installations, or available in field upgrade kits for most King Air 90/200/300 models already equipped with Winglets. The light systems are available from BLR’s worldwide network of dealers and service providers.
