WINGTIP STROBE / NAV
We're pleased to make available to Zenith Aircraft
builders a full range of high quality LED (light emitting diode) aircraft lighting products.
By special arrangement with the manufacturer, we offer the
Zenair-branded AeroLED series of wingtip-mounted
The ExP or NSP series lights are mounted in a very
attractive anodized aluminum base (with clear polycarbonate lens) and are
very easy to permanently mount to the wingtip while also being virtually indestructible.
Thanks to our buying power, we can offer the American-made AeroLED lights to our
customers at very competitive prices.

LEDs (light emitting diodes) are quickly replacing old-generation lighting
systems for a number of very good reasons. Their main benefits
Much lower current draw: LEDs
consume just 20% of the power of an incandescent bulb for the same amount of light.
They are not prone to shock or vibration damage when properly mounted,
and operate at much cooler temperatures.
Installation of the LED
nav/strobe units is much lighter and easier to install. LED strobes do not require heavy bulky
power supplies, generate much less RFI than conventional (xenon) strobes or HID
landing lights, and operate on multi-voltage (9 - 30 volts DC).
The rated life of AeroLEDs
is 50,000 hours. Incandescent bulbs typically only
last about 100 hours in the high vibration environment found on
airplanes. Xenon strobe bulbs typically burn out in 1,000 hours,
while HID bulbs typically last about 5,000 hours.
Conventional ( xenon) strobes
provide all of their light in a short 100 micro-second long burst each
time they flash, whereas the LED strobes are on for 80 milli-seconds
for each flash. This provides a longer period of time for the human
eye to see the flashes.
LEDs are instant-on,
unlike HID bulbs which must strike and arc to warm up, and
incandescent bulbs that come on gradually as the filament heats
up. The life of LEDs are not affected by turning them on and
off, unlike incandescent and HID (high intensity discharge) bulbs
which wear out faster when they are cycled on and off. For
recognition light operation (landing lights wig-wag) LEDs do not
suffer a life penalty, but HIDs and incandescent lights experience more wear
in this mode than if they were just left on.
Durability: Housed behind a clear polycarbonate lens
on an aluminum base, the LED nav/strobe light is much more durable
than (breakable) conventional glass covers.

AeroLED WINGTIP STROBE / NAV
Features of the wingtip-mounted lights:
Combined 3-in-1 Nav/Position/Strobe (there's no need to install a
white tail position light to the rudder of the aircraft); low-drag sleek profile,
very attractive finish.
||The flagship product, the ExP, is a
Nav/Position/Strobe supplied in very attractive housing, and is
the best performing nav/strobe light on the market today.
The unit measures 5.65-inches (143
mm.) long x 1.825-inches (46 mm.) wide by 1.29-inches (32 mm.)

||The brand new NSP unit is more
compact with the same footprint as a conventional (AeroFlash or
Whelan) nav/strobe light
to easily fit the older style fiberglass wingtips.
The compact unit measures just
4-inches (100 mm.) long and just 1.3 inches (33 mm.) tall.

Light for the STOL Series aircraft:
||The compact super-bright
landing light mounts inside the wing leading edge slat for a clean
installation. The light can be mounted on just one side (one
wing) of the aircraft, or a landing light kit can be installed
into each wing (and synchronized for high visibility wig-wag).
MicroSun: 1,800 lumens, 20 watts
The same kit fits all STOL aircraft
Lighting: Tail Light and Landing Lights
||AeroLED also manufactures various
LED landing lights and tail lights for your aircraft.
