Aircraft Lighting International, maker of LED drop-in replacements for legacy fluorescent and incandescent cabin lighting systems, arrives at EBACE 2022 with two newly introduced aircraft lighting product lines: LED exterior lighting and LED cockpit lighting replacements for legacy lighting systems. ALI unveiled the new systems earlier this month at the NBAA Maintenance Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
ALI’s products are designed for the aftermarket “to service the thousands of aging aircraft that weren’t produced with LED lighting systems,” said Pelle Nilsson, v-p of business development.
The exterior and cockpit LED lights, like ALI’s cabin LED lighting, are true “plug and play” replacements, requiring no modification for virtually any business jet that has original A/E or B/E lighting and greatly reduces installation downtime, according to ALI. “A complete interior lighting replacement installation can take weeks,” Nilsson said, while in contrast, “ALI products can be installed in hours.”
The replacement lights are operated through the original control interfaces, simplifying installation. LED systems also reduce power consumption by as much as 80 percent and generate less heat, leaving more electrical power for other onboard uses.
