The National Agency for Civil Aviation (ANAC) in Brazil has given certification approval for PWI’s B200/250 window LED solution.
“Brazil has one of the largest active fleets of King Air aircraft outside the USA,” said Robi Lorik, president and CEO of PWI. “The uneven terrain makes for short runways and tricky approaches, so aircraft like the King Air B200/250 is the perfect fit for use there. This will be a big help to hundreds of King Air owners that have been waiting for an ANAC-certified LED option.”
PWI said the King Air B200/250 LED option provides 100,000 hours of life, and the same light specifications and colour temperature as fluorescents. The company added that the LED upgrade requires 50% less measured operating current and eliminates the need for a high voltage.
“PWI was recently honoured as a Small Business Exporter by the US Small Business Administration,” said Lorik. “We’re happy to expand our certified exporting options, while also helping out King Air B200/250 owners who were waiting on ANAC certification.”
The B200/250 LED upgrade is already STC- and EASA-certified. This LED upgrade joins PWI’s 300/B300/350 LED upgrade series in receiving ANAC approval.
PWI’s part number 6900422-009 is designed for a nine-window aircraft, part number 6900422-010 for a 10-window aircraft and 6900422-011 for an 11-window aircraft. The B200/250 LED upgrade kit comprises Velcro-lined metal brackets, wiring harnesses and connectors. The B200/250 LED upgrade is compatible with the factory-installed connectors and ships with the certification paperwork. ANAC certification does not include Beechcraft models 200C, B200C and B200CT.
