SunSetter - PAR 36 Taxi Light
The SunSetter LED Taxi Light is engineered to be a drop-in replacement for ALL PAR 36 legacy lamps. Cutting-edge LED technology requires only a fraction of the power while providing a stunningly bright light. The unique "spreader optic" lens creates a 60° horizontal flood light in front of your plane to facilitate ground operations & dramatically increase your aircraft's visibility to other pilots in all phases of operation.

Why Aero-Lites LEDs vs legacy sealed beams?
Aero-Lites PAR 36 LEDs require less than 1/5th of the power of the filament type lamps that they replace. This significant reduction in current frees up valuable current for your critical Communication and Navigation instruments. FYI, the light output of legacy sealed beams is a function of the input voltage. During low engine RPM conditions (aka: taxi, approach and landing) your charging system may not be able to sustain the required 14 or 28 volts, so your sealed beams are producing much less than the spec'd light output. Our PAR 36 LED's produce the same stable light output at any voltage between 10-30VDC.
Where Legacy sealed beams may last 100hrs in the most ideal situation, our PAR 36 replacements will likely outlive your aircraft with their average lifespan of 30,000 hours. It doesn't require a mathematician to see how quickly your investment in our LEDs will be realized. Since our LED are not affected by vibration, you will never again have the aggravation and expense of constantly replacing burned out lamps in your cowling-mounted landing light fixtures.
Aero-Lites LED PAR 36 replacements are engineered with US engineered, industry-leading CREE XP-E LED chips. We have selected LED chips with a color temperature of 6,000-6,500 kelvin. This color of light is consistent with that of the sun (imagine looking at the reflection of the Sun on an object like a mirror or glass). This intense brightness is hands-down many times easier to identify ESPECIALLY when it comes to air-to-air aircraft recognition which will lessen the risk of mid-air collisions, runway incursions and even bird-strikes (birds have tremendous vision and will attempt to avoid aircraft should the see these intensely bright lights).
