Bombardier chose Goodrich Hella Aerospace Lighting Systems to provide LED technology for internal and external lighting on the new Global 5000. A Goodrich Hella spokesman said the LED-based systems are expected to lower maintenance costs and reduce the need for unscheduled repairs. Deliveries of the lighting systems are expected to begin early next year. The Global 5000 is expected to enter service by the end of 2004. Goodrich acquired Lippstadt Hella KG Heuck, based in Lippstadt, Germany, in September last year. The new company, with North American headquarters in Oldsmar, Fla., is also providing LED lighting systems for Bombardier’s new Challenger 300 (née Continental).
