Heads Up Technologies delivers High Intensity LED Landing Lights for the Cessna CitationJet Family
Exterior LED lighting developments enhance performance while reducing weight,
power and size.
Carrollton, Texas – October 19, 2009 – Heads Up Technologies, Inc., a leading
supplier of electronic solutions for general aviation and commercial aircraft, has
developed and qualified several high intensity LED exterior lights for the Cessna CJ
family, including the landing lights. Originally developed for the CJ4, these lights are
now available on production CJ1, CJ2 and CJ3 aircraft.
High brightness LEDs were used to replace traditional incandescent bulbs for the
landing lights, wing inspection lights, tail flood lights, and overwing exit lights. These
LEDs used approximately one-third of the electrical current, reduced size, weight,
waste heat, and parts count, while improving light output performance.
“New developments in LED technology makes possible what seemed unreachable
only a few years ago.” said Rob Harshaw, President/CEO for Heads Up. “We believe
we have developed and qualified the first LED landing light that is standard equipment
on a production aircraft” he added.
The family of exterior lights will be on display at Heads Up’s booth #4754 at the NBAA
in Orlando, Fl.
