Pilot Light Pro serves two main functions. It provides hands free panel lighting, as well as map lighting. using the latest in LED technologies it delivers 19 hours of continuous use. Pilot Light Pro is delivered with two AA Procell 1500 batteries installed, and may also optionally be installed using ships power. The internal circuit board will cut off the internal battery source once ships power is turned on. Loss of ships power will return the unit back to it's battery source, leaving you with light to work by in the advent of any problem i.e. loss of alternator.
Installation is quick and easy if using battery only option, simply peel and stick using 3M power lock. The panel light is fully adjustable see our web site for installation instructions. Wiring to ship's power will require a Licensed A&P and a 337 Form, field approval may be required by local Fisdo.
This cabin light was amazing did my first night flight and it was just fantastic to see my gauges It is a safety feature so if you lose electricity this will still run on batteries for 19 hours It will get you back safe and sound
MAKE-IT PILOT LIGHT PRO RED
Installed in a 68 Piper Cherokee 180 and works great! Easy to wire it to the planes 12 volt power and ground so the batteries are only used as a back up. The dimmer feature is also very nice to set for various conditions easily in flight and lights up the whole panel area with easy to see all the non lit switches and controls when needed. Should have purchased this sooner!
Great product. Love it.
Great unit. I’ve told everyone I know who owns a plane to get this lighting unit as aSoon as possible. I prefer green as for me it provides better overall lighting and you can Epstein the instrument better with less eye strain. Received great service from Aircraft Spruce as usual making your company is my GO TO place when I need various parts. Keep up the great service.
awesome great lighting works perfect
Looks like a grate product.
Ive used this for four years in my turbo-arrow. It works great. The green light illuminates the instrument panel much better than the original red light.
I looked for quite a while before purchasing have jus received and not installed but did a trial test in the aircraft tonight on batteries I purchased the Red as all my other lighting was that colour and I thought changing would be distraction. The forward dash light as others have said is very bright when turned to full and the map lights look like they will be just whats needed. The 12 volt connection looks very simple indeed.
Ive flown many dark nights with this little gem & have been surprised how long the batteries that come with it last. The panel in my 150 is lit up very well even turned way down. I picked the green as what the inventor recommended to me saying it made the gauges brighter than the red. I am very satisfied.
Simple to install. Forward swiveling LED lights rheostat controlled and if placed right can illuminate your whole panel (good emergency lighting if you lose a generator). Small white kneeboard LEDs are on/off and don’t dim but brightness and narrow pattern make them perfect kneeboard lights. But they are both controlled together (cannot turn on only one). Overall a great light for prestart, back-up panel lighting, and kneeboard illumination.
