Aircraft High Intensity Discharge (HID) Landing and Taxi Lights

HID lights offer up to 6  times more light than standard incandescent or halogen bulbs while drawing only a fraction of the current.

The lights feature a 5,000 hour life and run cool so they can be left on indefinitely. We stand behind them with a full 5 year, or as long as you own your aircraft warranty!  (Kits HID03-3612L, HID03-3612T, HID03-3624L, HID03-3624T are not a Knots 2U STC and carry a two year warranty.) 
Similar lights are sold for over $900.00 apiece.  Knots 2U's prices start at $550.00 each!

Frequently Asked Questions About HID Lights.

What are the advantages of HID technology over traditional bulbs?

More light output

A 35-Watt HID lamp produces up to 6x the lumens  compared to a standard landing light bulb.  Night landings will be much easier.

Whiter light

While an incandescent or  halogen light appears yellowish, the HID lighting system produces a light that is closer to that of natural sunlight.

Increased Visibility

In most nighttime or bad weather situations, this combination of a whiter color and a greater light output allows for a safer and more illuminated landing and taxi.  In flight they will stand out for miles ahead of standard lights.  HID Lights will allow you to see and be seen!

Reduced power consumption

HID lamp systems draw significantly less power from your aircrafts electrical system.

Greater product life

HID lamp systems are designed to virtually last the life of your aircraft. Due to the fact that they produce very little heat, draw only a percentage of the amperage and have such a long life HID lights can be turned on when you start your plane and left on until you shut it off. This should be the last bulb you will have to change. 

Distinctiveness

Your aircraft will not only have the latest in lighting technologies, but will also have that unique eye-catching appeal. These lights will be noticed!

 


Will the bulbs get too hot?

No, HID lights actually produce significantly less heat than standard bulbs.  These lights can be left on for extended periods of time and not cause problems.

Can I use HID lights if my aircraft has tip tanks?

Yes, HID lights can be used in and around fuel lines and fuel tanks when the FAA regulations are followed.

What is the difference between genuine XENON HID lights and Xenon gas-filled bulbs?

High Intensity Discharge (HID) is a type of lighting technology that replaces the filament of the light bulb with Xenon gas. The gas is ignited to produce an arc of light, when high voltage is applied. The amount of light output is three times that of a standard halogen bulb. The lamps also glow at a higher light temperature (closer to natural sunlight) that gives it its distinct color and appearance.

Other companies produce halogen bulbs that are gas-filled. They still have a filament as they are halogen technology, but the gas gives the bulb a bluer color when lit. Xenon-filled halogen bulbs produce little or no more light output then standard halogen bulbs of the same wattage.

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY COMPANIES THAT OFFER HID LOOK BULBS! They are not a true XENON HID light system.

How long will these bulbs last?

HID XENON lamps are designed to last for virtually the life of your aircraft.  Our lamp kits and bulbs are made of the finest materials available while incorporating the latest generation of electronics available.

Could I not just purchase a stronger watt halogen bulb to get a brighter light?

XENON HID lamps are 35 watts while traditional  bulbs are anywhere from 100 to 250 watts. Even though HID lamps draw less current, they produce up to 3 to 5 times the light output as the higher wattage bulbs. Increasing the wattage will make the bulb a little brighter but still much dimmer than the HID lamps. Also as you increase the wattage, you increase the current draw on your entire electrical system. This is critical in many aircraft applications.

Could I Install the kit myself?

For anyone who is mechanically inclined, this installation is considered "do-it-yourself".  A typical installation generally takes less than an hour for each light, it can vary depending on access to the landing lights on your aircraft. Our kits are ready to install right-out-of-the-box and come complete with everything that you will need. We also provide you a full set of easy-to-read, step-by-step instructions to guide you.

Please note that this is an FAA approved STC'd system and the installation will require the proper paperwork completed by your mechanic.  Check with your mechanic before performing the work.

How much modification is required to my aircraft to install the HID lights?

Our kits are designed to be installed with little modifications to your aircraft. They are virtually a direct replacement for your existing lights.
