West Star Aviation has installed a Prizm Lighting LED cabin light system on a Falcon 7X. The work was performed at the company’s site in East Alton, Illinois.
The new system replaces indirect lighting throughout the cabin, forward and aft lavatories and galley, upwash/downwash and floor lighting.
The Prizm system provides control of full-colour-spectrum cabin lighting through all phases of flight using a dedicated phone or tablet app, or it can be integrated into existing cabin or IFE controls. West Star Aviation said the system will work with most older analog control systems or with newer digital control systems.
Installation requires the removal of the interior and West Star Aviation noted it is best completed concurrently with interior refurbishments. No STC is required as all components are PMA-certified from the manufacturer, Prizm Lighting.
West Star Aviation has installed several Prizm systems in various airframes across its network, but the 7X installation marks a first.
West Star Aviation specialises in the repair and maintenance of airframes, engines and APUs, avionics installations and repair, major modifications, interior refurbishment, exterior paint, accessory services and parts.
In addition to its primary facilities in East Alton, Grand Junction (Colorado), Chattanooga (Tennessee) and Perryville (Missouri), West Star Aviation also maintains satellite facilities in Aspen and Denver (Colorado), Chicago (Illinois), Houston (Texas) and Minneapolis (Minnesota).
