Amazing lighting when needed the most during takeoffs and landings. When you need a bright light to see fully down the runway at night 🌉 🌙. No other than this!!

Oh my... I held off on switching to LEDs because of cost and marginal reviews for lower cost options. These are worth every penny. They are noticeably brighter than the old incandescent bulbs. Only time will tell if they will last as long as advertised, but I am looking forward to not needing to replace bulbs on a cold evening before a night flight.

Very easy install in a 1958 Cessna 172. Lights are very bright and much better that my old GE bulbs. Havent had them long, but all positive so far.

The new G3 series finally showing what the proper LED lights can do for brightness and low amp draw. Great design and seems to be made well.

Purchased this as replacement for my 1977 Piper Turbo Arrow III. Installation was relatively straight forward. Light is very bright and works well. Didnt give 5 stars because the rubber gasket that came with the light does not fit right. Gasket is too narrow to fit over light rim. Wound up having to use old gasket, which was in poor shape.
