AeroLEDs announces upgrade for AeroSun
November 28, 2012, 05:10 pm
AeroLEDs recently announced that it has upgraded its AeroSun for use in light-sport and experimental aircraft. The product is used for landing, taxi and recognition purposes. According to the company, it uses one-quarter of the power of a 100-watt halogen bulb while producing an equal amount of light.
"The AeroSun is a wing-mounted LED landing light with a built-in wig wag mode in addition to its standard operation as a landing/taxi light," reads AeroLEDs' website. "The AeroSun, constructed of extruded aluminum, is a very intense light source that uses 12 high-power LEDs to produce up to 1600 lumens of light using just 24 watts of power. The product is ideal for installations in aluminum aircraft or composite aircraft where some airflow within the wing cutout exists."
The upgrade includes the increase to 12 LEDs within the same size model, up from eight in the previous version. The product sells for $325.
As for other additions to older versions of products for pilots, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association added to its FlyQ application for electronic devices, which now includes geo-referenced moving maps, runway diagrams and approach plates.
Along with helping increase the visibility and ease of flying their planes, pilots should consider pilot life insurance for an extra layer of protection. Insurance can provide peace of mind while in the air, because knowing a plan for finances in place will allow them to focus on flying.
