LoPresti SpeedMerchants Announces Cirrus ZipTips at AirVenture 2006


Oshkosh, WI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/28/2006 --LoPresti SpeedMerchants, the “Leading Provider of Aviation Performance Solutions”, introduces another unique performance product at AirVenture 2006.

LoPresti has designed a new wing tip and landing light combination for the Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft. The new LoPresti “ZipTips” place two high intensity Boom Beams at the very periphery of the Cirrus wing. The new tips not only add a whopping 750,000 lumens to the landing illumination but are designed to aid taxi operations, a notorious blind spot on Cirrus aircraft.

As always, the LoPresti Boom Beams provide the highest quality, longest life and brightest bulbs in the industry. Since all Cirrus aircraft already ship with Boom Beams on board, these new tips bring the SR lighting output to One Million lumens!

The new Cirrus “ZipTips” are on display at the LoPresti booth at AirVenture until Sunday.
