LED entry light earns PMA approval for PWI
The FAA has given PMA approval for the LED entry door light for King Air 200, B200/250, 300 and B300/350 twin turboprops. Illuminating the ground below the door, the upgrade features long life and low power draw.
In addition to charter and business missions, cargo and airmed operators will appreciate the brighter light for loading patients, cargo and equipment, without running the engines.

Wichita, Kansas-based aviation lighting specialist PWI has received FAA PMA approval for the LED entry door light for Beechcraft King Air 200, B200/250, 300 and B300/350 twin turboprops. When the passenger cabin door is lowered, this LED light illuminates the ground below the door. Mounted between the engine and the fuselage under the pilot side wing, it provides passengers with a well-lit entry to the aircraft.

The entry door LED light replaces the MS24513-4174, A4174-24 and M6363/3-1 incandescent bulb products, and features the correct bayonet socket for a true plug-and-play direct replacement installation, without aircraft mods.

CEO and president Robi Lorik says: “King Air owners and operators, regardless of mission, will benefit from this exterior LED light upgrade. As we all know, the passenger experience begins before boarding, and our LED sets the tone for a pleasant flight. In addition to charter and business missions, cargo and airmed operators will also appreciate the brighter light for loading patients, cargo and equipment, without running the engines. Of course, this light upgrade features the long life and lower power draw that is the hallmark of all PWI LEDs.”

The approval covers Beechcraft King Air 200 series, B200/250 series, 300 series and B300/350 series aircraft. There is no entry door light on the King Air 90.

“2022 for PWI has set records for sales and new product announcements,” Lorik continues. “Our most recent initiatives include the addition of resellers, dealers and global distribution partners, a new company logo and elevated product development, PWI’s leadership in general aviation.”

PWI is the OEM for most King Air interior lighting, extending a decades-long history of OEM lighting fluorescent lights for business jets. Aviation products can be purchased direct or through its growing authorised dealer and distribution network.
