And I thought Whelen was usually over-the-top expensive.

I was shocked, AS&S has a brand that is much more expensive and the old style whelans that i paid dearly for.

I did a quick web search and found a couple of small companies and the price was either the same or slightly less.

I trust whelen for a product that meets the required specs and it is easy to get yet another decision out of the way.

From day 1 i have said that i did not want filaments as the planes vibration wipes them out

I asked whelen if the new strobe position lights meets IFR requirements, this was my reply


drat!

Good Morning Mike,
Simply put, no. The design and construction is per TSO, the light output is what falls short. Please be aware, if a product "supposedly" complies wth all of the FARS, then it is just a matter of submitting paperwork to the FAA for approval. Beware of the many false claims that exist of "compliant" products.

Regards,
Jeff

Why make a light that is not legal for night vfr or ifr flight???

Everyone just knows the FAA will never test it?

That is not the way i think we should be building a plane.

Now, to me that is different than using a display for a glide-slope that is not approved. The unapproved display performs the exact same function as the approved one, the lights that appear to be readily available do not.

FYI



Greg,

Chris Nielsen asked me to reply to your email inquiry.

All our lights meet and exceed the FAA standards. Our position/nav/strobe/synchronized lights, whether they be the LSA, Ultra, or Andromeda series exceed 800 candela in brightness for the strobes (required value is 400 cd). The red position light is more than 800 candela, which exceeds the required value of 100 cd. The green light is more than 400 candela, which exceeds the required value of 100 candela. More information can be found on our web site: www.aveoengineering.com.

You may want to be careful when comparing outputs from others. The FAA requirement is 100 cd for the red and green position lights – to meet the latest FAA standards testing.

I have enclosed a couple of pictures of a Cozy installation. I recommend the LSA series light for your aircraft. You will not need a tail light, or anti-collision light, unless you just want to install one for extra visibility. When you get ready to order, just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help you. The LSA lights are $695.00 per pair, and there is no tax added, only actual shipping cost. The lights are in stock and can be shipped in a couple of days from the time we send you an invoice by email. Here are a couple of documents for your files.
