Astronics to provide next generation LED lights on King Airs


Hawker Beechcraft has teamed with Astronics to provide new LED landing and taxi lights for the King Air family of aircraft.

Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS) announced it has teamed with Astronics Corporation, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Luminescent Systems, to provide new light emitting diode (LED) landing and taxi lights for the Beechcraft King Air family.

Astronics’ LED lighting solution replaces the aircraft’s existing filament-based lighting system.

“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, Hawker Beechcraft senior vice president, Global Customer Support. “These new lights will provide our owners and operators with a best-in-class landing and taxi lighting solution.”
