Cessna Citation II 550 and 525 CJ1 business jets now have an OEM cabin lighting LED solution for replacing all of the original fluorescents. Wichita, Kansas-based aviation lighting specialist PWI has earned FAA PMA approval for all cabin configurations of the Citation II and the CJ1 models. PWI LED kits replace all fluorescents in the galley, lavatory and passenger cabin.
The Citation jet LED kits follow PWI's cabin LED kit for the Falcon 900B, which was FAA approved earlier this year.
Replacing fluorescents with LEDs is beneficial for several reasons including reduced maintenance, extremely long service life, create no heat, no high voltage and possible EMI/RFI interference as well as eliminating buzz, hum and light flicker.
PWI LED kits are engineered to connect directly to the aircraft wiring, using the exact electrical connectors found in the Citation. This makes the plug-and-play installation of LEDs very straightforward.
These LED kits are offered in both 4000K warm white colour temperature as well as 5100K cool white. These LEDs dim using the original aircraft lighting controls or any third party cabin management system.
The Citation LED cabin lighting kits offer 100,000 service hours, require very low power and no maintenance, and run on the 28 volts supplied by aircraft.
These newly approved cabin light kits join the PWI LED reading lights already approved for Citations and nearly 100 additional piston, turboprop and jet aircraft. PWI continues to support Citation customers with the PMA-approved LED ice light/pylon floodlight as well as the yet-to-be-approved LED step light replacement for the cabin door steps.
The Citation LED cabin light kit has a three-year warranty and PMA number PQ4159CE, Supplement numbers: 25, 26, 27, 28 and 29.
Future expansion of this entire cabin LED upgrade work will include additional Citation, Falcon, Gulfstream and Learjet aircraft.
PWI is the OEM for most King Air interior lighting, extending a decades-long history of OEM fluorescent lights for business jets such as the Dassault Falcon, Gulfstream, Citation and Learjet. PWI FAA-approved LED aviation upgrades can be purchased direct or through its growing authorised dealer and distribution network.
