EMTEQ has been granted US FAA approval for a Supplemental Type Certificate involving the installation of the company’s LED anti-collision/position (navigation) light on Bombardier CRJ100/200/440 aircraft.
“EMTEQ has designed an LED drop-in replacement for the CRJ combined tail position and anti-collision light. Early installations demonstrate that this can be done during overnight maintenance visits with installation complete in less than two hours,” explained Dan Rice, business unit director with EMTEQ.
The EMTEQ LED tail light has a life expectancy of approximately 30,000 hours and meets FAR requirements. It is designed to be less susceptible to fluid ingress thus reducing the need to reseal and offering customers improved reliability and lower maintenance costs. Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) will be issued during the first quarter of 2011.
