West Star lights up Falcon 7X with LED
West Star Aviation has installed several Prizm systems in various airframes across its network, but a 7X installation marks a first. The Falcon now has full colour spectrum lighting throughout its cabin.

US MRO and refurbishment company West Star Aviation has successfully installed a Prizm Lighting LED cabin lighting system in its first Falcon 7X aircraft. The installation, completed at the company's St Louis Regional airport facility in East Alton, Illinois, replaces conventional indirect lighting throughout the cabin, forward and aft lavatories, galley, upwash/downwash and floor lighting with one system.

The Prizm lighting system provides control of full colour spectrum cabin lighting through all phases of flight using a dedicated phone or tablet app, or it can be integrated into existing cabin or IFE controls. The system will work with most older analogue control systems or with newer digital control systems.

Installation requires the removal of the interior and is best completed concurrently with interior refurbishments. No STC is required as all components are PMA Certified from the manufacturer.
