Hawker Beechcraft, Astronics to Provide LED Lights for King Air Aircraft
Hawker Beechcraft and Astronics Corporation are teaming up to provide new light emitting diode (LED) landing and taxi light retrofits for Beechcraft King Air family aircraft.
The new LED solution will replace the existing filament-based lighting system on King Air aircraft with deeper illumination for landing and taxing in the airport environment.
“Customer interest in LED lighting for the King Air family has been robust and we’re excited to work with Astronics to bring this capability to the market,” said Christi Tannahill, senior vice president of global customer support at Hawker Beechcraft.
