FLITELite CLASSIC Soft Touch Pilot Light. The Classic is available in several colors. The NVIS White filtered version was developed to meet MIL-STD-3009, for Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) aircrew auxiliary and utility lighting. This light is will work for the non-NVG equipped cockpit, but the White or Green version will deliver the same non-nvg performance at a lower price. The filtered standard version has a maximum brightness allowed, so this version will be more dim than other colors. The green version is NVIS compatible also, but brightness exceeds the maximum allowed in MIL-STD which is why it is not listed as conforming. The White light is the same as the NVIS light, but without the filter. The light has very little red in it making it NVIS friendly, but not compatible. The Red light is popular with general aviation pilots (and crews on ships).
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.
The CLASSIC function is simple:
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 light 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.
