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.

The FAA granted TSO approval for LED position and anti-collision lights manufactured by AeroLEDs. The approval means that the AeroLEDs position and nav lights are qualified for installation on all certified aircraft for which they are compatible. The company’s Pulsar NSP nav/strobe/position light, Pulsar N/S nav/strobe and SunTail tail strobe use LED lights with a life expectancy of 50,000 hours and no external power supply.
