Precise Flight (Booth No. 2030) of Bend, Ore., has gained STC approval for the company’s high-intensity-discharge (HID) Pulselite landing light for the Robinson R22 and R44. Precise Flight’s neighbor, Leading Edge Avionics, will be the first to install the HID Pulselite kit for the Robinson helicopters. HID lighting produces more light, lasts longer and uses less energy, said Scott Philiben, Precise Flight v-p of sales. Pulselite is designed to produce a light closer to that of natural sunlight, allowing for improved peripheral vision and enhanced visibility. Additionally, HID lighting has a product life averaging up to 5,000 hours and uses significantly less power than standard aviation lighting.
