|The compact SunBeacon II is a direct replacement for the standard beacon. It is available in red or white, and in 12V or 24V. It is TSO C-96a Class II approved for white, TSO-C96a Class I and Class III approved for red.|
Superbly fabricated hardware. Super bright beacon. Very pleased with this product. Just kills me how expensive the FAA makes it for anything to be certified.
Talk about bright - I can see it reflecting off my tires during taxi in daytime!!! Installation brochure warned mechanics not to look directly at it, without welding glasses! My 172A can be seen NOW.
Bought this at Oshkosh last summer and installed on the Skywagon. Flown 50+ hours since then, largely at night. Sunbeacon is an apt name. You *will* get spots in your eyes if you look at it, even in daylight! Draws hardly any current, plus it got rid of that annoying siren whine from the previous xenon strobe. It looks appropriate for a 50s-era Cessna, yet modern. And its visible from far, far away. There is a sync wire so you can mount one top and bottom side for even more visibility - I plan to install another at some point. Great product!

No as it has a TSO approval. It will just need to be installed and signed off by an A&P mechanic.
