LoPresti Releases An Upgrade For It's Hawker Fleet of BoomBeam HID Kits


Sebastian, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/27/2010 -- LoPresti Aviation has done it again. LoPresti now has an X2 upgrade kit available for Hawker aircraft that have previously installed BoomBeam HID. According to David LoPresti, Marketing Director, "The original BoomBeam kit improved lighting for the Hawker so much that we are on the majority of the fleet. With the release of the X2 Kit we have really upped the ante. The original BoomBeam was a quantum leap in output, now the X2 is 50% brighter than the original."

Customer feedback is always the best source for proof or disproof your product's acceptance. At LoPresti Aviation, engineers set out to increase exterior lighting on the Hawker 800 series. Judging from the customer feedback, the product continues to exceeded all expectations.  

Mark Jones, Director of Maintenance for Cozzens and Cudahy Air, found out first-hand how impressive the LoPresti X2 BoomBeam Lighting upgrade is for the Hawker 800s.
"I have to say this about the LoPresti BoomBeam HID light system for the HS125: They work great. Our Company was one of the first to try the original and now with the X2 System, all that needs to be said is WOW. Both sides were installed in one day. The output of the lights is at least 50% brighter than the original BoomBeam kit and that kit was a giant improvement over the standard factory light."

"The units have all the harness made up and the instructions are easily followed for the installation process. This product produces no heat. So, in the past years we have never had to replace a lens due to heat issues. This was a common occurrence with the original factory lights on the Hawker. The BoomBeam lights are reliable and we have not had a failure since the original installation."

"Since I am a Crew Member and Technician, I see the BoomBeam Mod from both sides. They succeed in all areas: Reliability, Maintainability and (most of all) Cost Effectiveness. Each time a light is replaced the Wing Lens must be removed and resealed -  this is downtime and the BoomBeams have eliminated this issue," reported Mark.
