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!
Lights are FAA-PMA Approved and can be field approved for virtually every aircraft. Bulbs are available in a 16 degree (landing) or a 34 degree (taxi)
Most cars currently use halogen bulbs in their headlights. The new blue-ish headlights are using a different technology called High Intensity
Discharge (HID). We normally see HID lamps in the form of mercury vapor and sodium vapor lights used as street lamps and as outdoor lighting for
stadiums. These lamps are popular because they are efficient. In the case of sodium vapor, they are twice as efficient as normal fluorescent bulb
