This STC is available exclusively through Sterling Helicopter, enabling owners of rotorcraft covered under this STC to immediately upgrade to the LED technology.
“These new LED lights far outperform what is currently offered on the Sikorsky S-76 series helicopters, increasing lamp life, night flight visibility and terrain awareness,” said Edward Allen, Director of Engineering at Sterling Helicopter.
The SunSpot Series Landing and Taxi lights feature the same design and construction that has been the AeroLEDs hallmark for over 15 years – less drag, less draw, more lumens output (total light output) and are vibration and shock resistant making them unaffected by adverse environmental conditions.
Sunspot Series LED Landing and Taxi lights can be seen from up to 30 miles away and can be left on in all phases of flight as they draw 40 per cent less power, significantly reducing the electrical load on the aircraft battery and alternator/generator system. These LEDs do not interfere with night vision equipment and are available with integrated pulse for optimum visibility during extreme operating conditions, negating the need and extra weight/cost of external pulse light boxes.
