Learjet 35 and 36 gain FAA-approved LED lighting from PWI

Kansas-based aviation lighting specialist PWI has received FAA PMA approval for its LED cabin lighting systems for the Learjet 35/35A and the Learjet 36/36A. These complete plug-and-play lighting packages eliminate the side effects created by high-voltage fluorescent lights, come with a three year PWI warranty and are ready to install straight out of the box; no aircraft modifications required. Customers can look forward to 100,000 hours of no-maintenance cabin lighting.

The LED system installation reuses the original aircraft lighting wiring, matching the original cabin lighting configuration. 4,000K neutral white colour temperature LEDs are powered by the aircraft-supplied 28 volts. No power inverters are needed.

"There are several hundred dedicated Learjet 35 and 36 owner/operators that are very excited to see continuing support for this aircraft, in production for 20 years, a good run by any measure," says president and CEO Robi Lorik. "This specific PMA approval is especially gratifying in that PWI was the OEM cabin lighting supplier to Learjet. I remember back to our first complete aircraft cabin lighting system in 1972."

PWI has been an OEM vendor of fluorescent cabin lights for Dassault Falcon, Gulfstream, Cessna Citation, Learjet and King Air aircraft for decades. PWI FAA-approved LED aviation upgrades can be purchased direct or through its growing authorised dealer and distribution network.
