The Astreon series of solid-state LED wingtip position lights was among Honeywell’s bag of announcements at the convention. Developed to last 10 times longer than current position lights, the Astreon series will soon be tested aboard a Gulfstream 550. Honeywell’s warranty on the lights is for 3,000 hours or five years of service. The LED’s modular design makes the lights easily retrofittable to a number of business airplanes, including the Citation X, Gulfstream IV and V and Learjet 31 and 60, according to Honeywell.
