Beech HID Light Upgrades

Thanks to the efforts of Mike Caban, a Baron owner, we 'had' a special ongoing 'Group Buy' on our Phillips 35W HID systems for Beechcraft owners. Our price is now as low as it can go, which is still a great deal for Beech owners.

Note that for Certificated aircraft you must get a 'Field Approval' for the installation of HID lights in place of the traditional Incandescent or Halogen lamps.

This should be fairly routine now, since these systems have been installed in many aircraft in the last few years. See Mike’s comments on approvals here,

Just to recap, the benefits of the HID lights over traditional lights are:

1 - They have no filament and are an 'energized gas' so they do not burn out.

2 - They are far brighter than any Halogen light. Many of my RV customers report that they can actually use the light to 'inspect' the runway while on final to make sure it is clear of obstructions, animals, etc.

3 - They only draw 3.2 Amps in steady on use, versus over 8 amps for a 100W lamp (at 14vdc). This low power draw plus the longevity of the lamp means you can have them on for anti collision all the time with no worries.

PLEASE go to our UPGRADES page to order these lights.
