Aircraft Lighting International (ALI) has received parts manufacturer approval (PMA) for its 12-mm LED lights, designed and built as direct replacements for B/E Aerospace and ALI fluorescents.

According to the Mount Sinai, N.Y.-based company, the replacement LEDs require no new wiring, no new lamp holders, no new dimmers and no new controllers. They are fully dimmable and “100-percent interchangeable with existing fluorescent lamps.”

Aircraft Lighting owner Nick Michelinakis says the price begins at $15 per inch, and it comes with a three-year warranty. He adds that an 8-mm version is in the works for the Falcon 2000 and Falcon 900 series, as well as a DC version.

The LED replacement lamps are available now and Michelinakis says, “If they order it today, they’ll get it tomorrow.”
