FLITELite GEN II Dual Sensor Pilot Light. The New GEN II is 30% smaller, and more efficient than GEN One. The new version was developed to meet MIL-STD-3009, for Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) aircrew auxiliary and utility lighting. This light is also perfect for the General Aviation Cockpit.
FLITELite comes complete with:
MIL-STD-3009 specifies NVIS 'White', a 'cool', full spectrum color that has a slight green tint to it, but still allows the aircrew to see all colors. Many military and civilian aircrew that fly with Bose, David Clark, or Lightspeed headsets will appreciate the custom fit of the FLITELite adapter system.
GEN II accommodates pilots with headsets with shorter booms with incorporation of an 11 degree light angle. Longer booms can easily put the light in the proper position, now shorter booms can as well.
FLITELite GEN II microprocessor receives information from two sensors, the rear sensor faces the mouth and the front sensor activated by the finger:
Internal components are the highest quality, FLITELite is made in America. Design flexibility is achieved by using a specially designed circuit board, the same material used in the Mars Lander. The latest in sensor technology is controlled by proprietary software. All of the components are sealed by a dielectric epoxy to protect your investment before being ultrasonically welded into the case.
FLITELite is perfect for normal and emergency use. During normal operations FLITELite is great for reading charts and approach plates. FLITELite fills in dark spots, improves gauge visibility, and brightens up areas without light such as fuel selectors, etc...During emergency operations, FLITELite makes the electrical failure much less of an event. FLITELite has already logged several saves after electrical failures.
FLITELite GEN II has a number of great improvements. One of them is that the angle on the light was changed from 0 degrees relative to the face of the light to 11.5 degrees. When the pilot adjust the light to point directly ahead, some flexible and wire microphone booms were too short for some pilots heads. We tested, and found that by offsetting the light eleven degrees, we were able to put the light in the proper position for pilots with even the largest craniums.
