Honeywell Introduces LED Position Light
In a bid to make airplanes more visible, Honeywell has introduced the Astreon LED (light-emitting diode) aft position light. TSO approval is expected from the FAA in time for a product release early next year. The light is a form-fit replacement for several current Honeywell parts. It complements the Astreon wingtip position lights that have been available since 2003. The LED aft position light can be designated a scheduled maintenance item, to be removed and replaced during a specific maintenance event, Honeywell said.
