A flashlight is a must have for every pilot's flight bag. In or out of the cockpit, this conveniently sized, long lasting, and durable flashlight serves as a great pilot companion. This 3-in-one LED flashlight toggles between red, green, or white depending on your cockpit needs. With an LED life of 100,000 hours, the included alkaline batteries can keep this flashlight illuminated for up to 17 hours in "red" mode, and 14 hours in "white".
Very solid. And just the right size. Should it may bring a belt holder which is actually not included. But the size Made it easy to fit any pocket
Great little flashlight. I go through a bunch of them as they get get “re-homed” by friends who just need to borrow them for a sec never to be seen again. Green and red are a bit bright so I just use my fingers over the lense to regulate the light output to save my night vision.
Everything as advertised. Only problem or issue is you have to cycle thru the colors and that is hard at night.
PROS: Very solid, uses standard AA batteries and easy to find MagLite bulbs, has both green and red lens filters for night flying, turns on with solid 'click' by rotating the head of the flashlight, has a lanyard connection on the end of the flashlight. CONS: It's too bright for most nighttime use. I know - that's an odd thing to complain about, but the light output even with the red filter is almost dazzling when flying at night. Rotating switch really requires two hands, making it difficult or impossible to use while flying. CONCLUSION: This is a very sturdy and versatile flashlight, but I do not think it is useful as an in-flight light source for night flying unless you have a co-pilot and are prepared to take a few moments for your eyes to readjust after using it. I have a small button cell LED light that I will continue to use for night flying - this one will stay in my flight bag in case I drop something after a flight or for other emergency purposes.
Great preflight tool. Not so good in the cockpit. If you shut it off you have to cycle through all the colors to get back to the one you want. Hard to do because of how bright it is.
ASA AIRCLASSICS FL-3C FLIGHTLIGHT FLASHLIGHT
Worked well for about 10 months... Flashlight no longer changes color modes (red, white, green) and the one color (red) is not bright at all. At first I considered, corrosion, batteries, switch, battery holder, but nothing works... Not a great investment. In addition, its fatter than I would prefer. I like something a bit smaller that I can hold in my mouth if necessary.. Things can get busy in the air!
