The North American Aerobatic Team (NAAT), the iconic 40-year veteran airshow demonstration team, announced today that beginning December 3rd, 2023, they will fly under the TITAN Aviation Fuels brand as the TITAN Aerobatic Team. The group, founded in 1984 by Alan Henley and Steve Gustafson, has become one of aviation’s mainstays, flying first under their own NAAT name, then as the AeroShell Aerobatic Team since 2001. They fly tight, awe-inspiring formation aerobatics in WWII-era North American AT-6 “Texans”, the aircraft famously known as the “Pilot Maker” due to its critical role as an advanced military trainer from the late 1930’s well into the 1950’s.
BOISE, IDAHO, USA, November 10, 2023 — AeroLEDs, a leading innovator in LED lighting solutions for aerospace, is pleased to announce Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) for its cutting-edge StarLight LED Wing Ice Inspection Light (PN: 01-7079-24). This certification solidifies AeroLEDs’ commitment to advancing aviation safety and underscores the company’s dedication to providing state-of-the-art lighting solutions for the aerospace industry.
Trusted since 2007, the AeroLEDs SunSpot Series LED landing and taxi lights offer unprecedented performance but consume minimal power. Already available in a 45W and 100W option, the NEW SUNSPOT 36-4000 Series 75W LEDs offer the same trusted reliability but top the charts with the HIGHEST CANDELA IN THE INDUSTRY for a PAR36 LED landing light.
Boise, April 22, 2022 – AeroLEDs, LLC is pleased to announce FAA-PMA/STC approval for the SunSpot™ Series LED Landing and Taxi lights on over 300 makes and models of Part 25 transport category aircraft, adding to their constantly growing list of FAA certifications. Available immediately, this STC brings the safety and reliability of LED lighting technology into the hands of air carriers all over the country.
Boise, January 20, 2022 – AeroLEDs, LLC is pleased to announce FAA-STC approval for the SunSpot™ 36 and 46 Series LED Landing and Taxi lights on various Sikorsky Models, adding to their already expansive list of FAA certifications. This STC is available exclusively through Sterling Helicopter, enabling owners of rotorcraft covered under this STC to immediately upgrade to the highest performing LED technology on the market today.
“These new LED lights far outperform what is currently offered on the Sikorsky S-76 series helicopters, increasing lamp life, night flight visibility and terrain awareness.” – Edward Allen, Director of Engineering, Sterling Helicopter.
AeroLEDs, LLC is pleased to announce FAA approval for over 200 Part 27 makes and models, adding to their expansive list of FAA certifications. This STC covers the installation of the SunSpotTM 36 and 46 Series LEDs on nearly all “Normal” category rotorcraft.
AeroLEDs Landing, Taxi and Recognition lighting products offer numerous advantages over Halogen, Xenon, and other LED lighting technologies. AeroLEDs are 10x more efficient, draw far less current than incandescent lighting, and require no external hi-voltage power supply.
Landing lights are not only useful for taxi, takeoffs, and landings, but also provide a means by which airplanes can be seen by other pilots. To enhance the “see and avoid” concept, the FAA encourages pilots to turn on their landing lights when operating within 10 miles of an airport and below 10,000 feet. This also applies when operating both at night AND during the day in conditions of reduced visibility.
Boise, Idaho – AeroLEDs is adding yet another exciting addition to their highly sought-after SunSpot Series LED Landing line.
Voted the Best LED Landing Light by Aviation Consumer, the SunSpotTM LED series consume less power than legacy incandescent bulbs, outperform competitive LED’s, and are vibration and shock resistant making them unaffected by adverse environmental conditions. Outputting a solid, evenly distributed light beam the SunSpotTM LED Series emit exceptional color rendering of an object due to the bright white color temperature, as opposed to “grayed” out images from the lower color temperature of legacy incandescent lamps.
Reliability is the priority for any light, whether flying at 50 or 35,000 feet, hence the need for drastic changes in lighting technology since the dawn of aviation. Incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, and xenon, have all been eclipsed by the performance and reliability gains of LED technology, which has become the new benchmark.
Therefore in 2005 in a small U.S. town, our team set out on a mission to redefine the standard for Aerospace lighting. We forged our own path with equal parts: Innovation and Perspiration, bridging the gap between functionality and performance – AeroLEDs™ was born.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho, August 26, 2019 – AeroLEDs is proud to announce that the SunSpot 36 and 46 series of landing and taxi lights are EASA certified for part 23 aircraft listed on their AML-STC.
Significantly longer life! Good landing and taxi lights are important. Not only for the pilot to be seen, but also for your plane to be seen. Instead of the typical 50 hours of use, these LED lights last beyond 30,000 hours, basically making it a lifetime lamp. You can then leave it on for daytime flights, for greater safety.
New PMA Certified:
- SunSpot 4596 LED Landing Lights
- SunSpot 4587 LED Taxi Lights
- Replaces the 250 Watt GE4596 and GE4587
