Vero Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/24/2007 -- David and Curt LoPresti smile as the first five Cirrus Tri Tip HID taxi light kits ship. LoPresti’s newest STC, LoPresti Tri Tips triple the landing light output of the SR22 and SR20 aircraft. The TriTips place two high intensity LoPresti Boom Beams at the very periphery of the Cirrus wingtip. The lamps are mounted under a beautiful set of flush bonded lens. The BoomBeams in the tips put out an additional 750,000 lumens to the landing illumination improving the pilot’s visibility during all phases of flight. Greatly improving safety in flight and during ground operations.
As always LoPresti Boom Beams provide the highest quality, longest life products on the market. Cirrus aircraft already ship with Boom Beams on board, these new tips bring the light output to one million lumens. The kit includes wing tips that accept the Boom Beam, wiring harnesses and all necessary hardware, instructions and STC and sells for $5995. Please stop by our booth at NBAA or AOPA.
