Great looking addition to the tail of my Seabee. Very bright. Bolt pattern was correct but had to enlarge socket hole on my rudder as new socket is a full 1-1/8â diameter. Worth the effort!

Outstanding Product and high-quality. Straight-forward install on my Grumman AA-5B and many times brighter than the stock lamp. Had to switch the polarity on the wires, but I have had to do that on the wingtip lights (Whelen Chroma) as well. Just switch the spade connectors and youre rolling.

Havent actually installed it yet:) This will be the last light to go LED or Xenon on my plane. Appreciate the salespersons help on the phone re the orientation: SOME Cessnas take a horizontal mount I believe it was four years models around the M and N series. This is not reflected (no pun intended) in your catalogue, which makes it difficult to order, since it only calls for a vertical mount for Cessnas. Anyway, nice and bright, and I didnt need/want a strobe back there, so perfect.

I recently replaced the wingtip lights with the Whelen Orion 600 system and decided to replace the position light on the tail with the Whelen LED position light so that all the lights would match. This product is so much brighter than the old incandescent light bulb, I really love it.

Q: Is the Whelen LED Tail Position Light 71554 series approved for use in certified aircraft?

Yes, this product is FAA TSO approved for use in certified aircraft.

Q: Does the Whelen LED Tail Position Light 71554 provide strobe as well as position?

Per the supplier: No. If they want the dual function they would need either 12V OR5001V (our part # 11-11975) or 28V OR5002V (our part # 11-11977).

Q: is this unit sealed/moisture resistant?

Per Whelen: Yes, the 71554 series lights are sealed to prevent water damage.

Q: I was wondering what the difference is between this 71554 series LED light and the Orion 500 light?

The Orion 500 is not availabe in a horizontal mount configuration. The Whelen TDS refer to the 11-10682 as a taillight assembly, and the TDS on the Orion 500 as a tail position/anti-collision light assembly.

Q: What is the difference between a vertical and horizontal mount on the Whelen LED 71554 series lights? I have a Cessna 172 M model with the tail nav light on the upper rudder tip.

The vertical & horizontal is in reference to the orientation of the mounting holes/screws.
Vertical = 12 & 6 o'clock
Horizontal = 9 & 3 o'clock positions
Typically 90% of installs require the vertical mount.

Q: May I use the WHELEN LED TAIL POSITION LIGHTS 71554 SERIES in my PA-38 Tomahawk to replace the normal one? Piper p/n: 472 736  * LIGHT - Tail (A-2064-1073).

Yes, that will fit the same footprint.
