Honeywell LED wingtip lighting now standard on Airbus A320 family aircraft

Honeywell announced today that its Light Emitting Diode (LED) wingtip navigation lighting is now standard on new production Airbus A320 Family aircraft, comprising the A318, A319, A320 and A321. Honeywell's LED wingtip navigation lighting lasts up to 40 times longer than current halogen technology, greatly reducing operator maintenance costs. Drop-in LED replacements make maintenance quicker and easier. "Honeywell's LED lighting solution ensures safety by guaranteeing light output is always bright enough to be compliant with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR)," said Jeff Johnston, vice president of Platform Components, Honeywell Aerospace. "Our technology accurately determines the life of the light to ensure continued airworthiness instead of letting it dim beyond standards, which allows operators to proactively plan maintenance." Honeywell offers retrofit LED wingtip lighting for the A320 Family as well, which requires no aircraft modification for installation. This product is part of an overall suite of fourth generation LED aircraft lighting products, building on Honeywell's LED technology that has been used for commercial and military planes for more than a decade. For more than 80 years, Honeywell has designed and manufactured lighting products and complete lighting systems for virtually every configuration of fixed-wing and rotary aircraft.
