Wig-Wag Lights Now Standard
Garmin Transponders for Next-
on Sting S3
SportairUSA says wig-wag recogni-
tion lights are now standard equip-
ment on the Sting S3 light-sport
aircraft. The Sting’s wig-wag system,
controlled by a switch on the in-
strument panel, alternately flashes
the landing and taxi lights in the
airplane’s wingtips. Current own-
ers of the Sting S3 can retrofit their
airplanes with a kit. All S3s and late
model StingSports were originally
equipped with an extra switch and
circuit breaker in anticipation of the
availability of the wig-wag kit. For
information, call 888-359-7572.
Garmin International Inc. has received the FAA’s TSO-C166a authorization for the GTX 330 and GTX 33
transponders with 1090 MHz extended squitter transmission capabilities.
Garmin is the first in the industry to
receive TSO-C166a authorization for
a general aviation transponder, and
this transponder will establish aircraft
on the path toward complying with
the FAA’s proposed requirement for
ADS-B (automatic dependent surveil-lance-broadcast) equipage.

AeroLEDs Introduces SUNSpot
The SUNSpot landing/recognition light uses the highest quality LEDs currently
available and was designed as a drop-in replacement for the existing PAR 36
lighting applications. The lighter weight SUNSpot eliminates radiant heat and
projects 2800 lumens, equivalent to two 100 watt halogen lights, and incorporates built-in circuitry to allow fully operational recognition “wig-wag” flashing
lights that are used to increase aircraft visibility and safety during all phases
of flight. Additionally, its low current draw ( 33 percent of a GE4509) reduces
power consumption so that constant operation of the lights can be employed
without drawing significant power from the electrical system.
