AeroLEDs has received FAA approval for more than 200 Part 27 makes and models. The new Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) covers the installation of the SunSpot 36 and 46 Series LEDs on nearly all “Normal” category rotorcraft.

The SunSpot Series Landing and Taxi lights feature less drag, less draw, more lumens output (total light output), and are vibration and shock resistant, which makes them unaffected by adverse environmental conditions, according to company officials. These attributes make the SunSpot ideal for use in Experimental, Certified, Commercial, ARFF, and Military rotorcraft, officials add.

The AeroLEDs Sunspot Series LED Landing and Taxi lights can be seen from up to 30 miles away and can be left on in all phases of flight as they draw 40% less power, significantly reducing the electrical load on the airplane’s battery and alternator system, company officials explain.

They also maintain their full light output even at low engine rpm, which is critical for landing configuration, according to company officials. The LEDs do not interfere with NVG equipment and are available with integrated pulse for optimum visibility during extreme operating conditions, negating the need and extra weight of external pulse light boxes, company officials add.

Aircraft listed on this STC include Airbus, Bell Textron, Robinson, Sikorsky, MD Helicopters, Leonardo, Orlando Helicopter, Enstrom, and more.
