Exceptionally bright. Also lowered the draw on my battery. Very pleased with how easily it installed on my Cessna 180

The model -51 was the perfect fit for my PA39. Simply drill out the rivets and replace with 3-32 screws and nuts.

Although not quite a drop in replacement for the 206 (needing to remove the vertical cap, drill holes, and very minor wiring), it is nevertheless a very easy installation. But the best part is how much brighter it is even in daylight. The light can now be seen much further away and is more eye catching than the old oem beacon. Well worth the price - especially in busy airport environments.

Whelen sales support recommended this as the drop-in replacement for my Piper Archer II. I fly in and around busy Bravo airspace and wanted to be extra visible to other aircraft. This beacon exceeded all expectations from size, weight, fit, function, visibility, and battery load. Furthermore, I have been able to clearly see the beacon from the ground (partner flying) from roughly a mile and a half away on a cloudless day. Clear night visibility is many miles. The only negative is that you have to turn it off along with strobes in the clouds on night IFR because of the intensity. Highly recommended if you want ultimate visibility and/or to remove load from your 14V electrical system as I did.

Q: Can you verify that 7108051 is the correct choice for a 1974 Cessna 182?

Per the manufacturer: the 7108051 is the correct part for your 182 if no modifications have been made to your aircraft.

The 7108014 has 12" wire attached to it for installation, and 7108018 has an MS3102R10SL-3P connector wired to the unit for installation. Order 7108018 only if you already have this MS connector on your aircraft.
