The Big Boss Approves!

Alan Klapmeier installs LoPresti TriTips lights to improve Cirrus SR22 visibility – See and Be Seen


Vero Beach, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/26/2007 -- LoPresti TriTips™ lights passed the most critical test of all. In a recent night landing, these brilliant lights added to Alan Klapmeier’s personal SR22 landing visibility and taxi illumination. After landing, Alan, CEO and founder of Cirrus Design, remarked about his new HID tip lights “I LOVE these lights!”.

Visibility means safer conditions. Dimly lit runways have always been a reoccurring aviation problem. LoPresti, a big supporter of the Cirrus community, reacted to this need by developing the HID TriTips™. The system produces 1million lumens (in daytime lit like a 747), vastly improving depth perception on landing and providing supurb taxi illumination. The unique flush mount design of the lens accentuates the beautiful lines of the SR22 without the need for a glare fence. Aerotect thin film coating is added for lens/ leading edge protection, and separate cockpit switch for easy operation further refine this lighting solution.

In order to expedite installation and minimize labor hours, LoPresti has implemented a nation wide program with select Cirrus dealers. The purchase is an exchange process. The old tips are exchanged for the new and the aircraft in back in service with a minimum of down time. All necessary components including wiring, switches and even panel decals are included in this high quality kit.

Without a doubt, as Alan Klapmeier saw first hand, more light creates a safer environment for today’s pilot. Call a LoPresti TriTips™ stocking dealer for more information or call LoPresti SpeedMerchants 1-772-562-4757
