Aveo Engineering Group, a multinational company headquartered in the Czech Republic, has gained FAA TSO C30c and C96a certification for its Ultra Galactica series of two- and three-function wingtip lights, as well as its Red Baron anti-collision beacon for aircraft. The company says it is now in the process of receiving STCs for Hawker jets and aircraft built by Cessna (singles and twins), Mooney, Cirrus, Piper and Robinson Helicopter.
The Ultra Galactica wingtip lights combine red or green navigation lights with strobes and also include a white tail-light. The Red Baron beacon can be fuselage or vertical stabilizer-mounted. All Aveo airframe lighting is self-contained, with no external power supplies necessary for operation.
Aveo includes an unlimited lifetime warranty with most of its products. “We will simply swap out the unit for a new one,” said Aveo founder and CEO Christian Nielsen. The warranty does not, however, cover abuse or lightning strikes.– A.L.
