Hopefully the last navigation light Ill replace. One nav light was out, so I got a pair to replace the filament edition. Installation was a cinch, theyre super bright, even behind the colored lens and very cool to the touch after hours of flight...as LEDs should be. So far so good.

Plug-in replacement for wingtip incandescent bulbs. The only wrinkle for me (not the products fault) is that my wingtip lights were wired with reverse polarity (not the fault of the product!). Once I corrected that on my aircraft, the LED lamps worked exactly as expected. Couldnt be simpler to install and they work as advertised.

Blubs are direct replacement for the incandescent bulbs for my NAV lights in my R182. Im hopeful the LED blubs will greatly outlast the regular bulbs. Time will tell. They are much brighter.

One of these 2 bulbs was dead! Called you & you told me to call mfgr. They made me go to the airport & test the bulb directly on the plane’s battery. I told them I already knew it was bad because it would not work in the same socket as the other similar bulb & 3 other known good bulbs. But I went & tested it & it was still dead. So I had to pay $15+ to ship it to the mfgr. They are shipping me another one. Somebody should reimburse me the $15+ shipping cost, but knowing how cutthroat businesses are, I’m sure that will never happen. Beware of buying any AeroLED products.

These units are supposed to be a drop in replacement for later model Cessna 172 wingtip Nav lights. In my case the base tip needed to be filed down by a few mms to allow the lugs to engage the slots in the socket. Not difficult but it took some time and avionics professional opinion to know this was the issue. This may only be an issue with some sockets. Mine did not have a spring loaded base which would probably allow for a longer base tip.
