They are not for certified aircraft and would technically require "field approval" to be installed. I would highly suggest not using these bulbs... your wings will fall off!!!

It's not that it won't work. I do believe that it will. The way my avionics guy explained it was that it was just old technology that is very expensive to repair to the point that if/when it fails it'll just need replacement rather than simple repair.

So I guess suggesting that this GDL-82 might not be the best choice for the KT76 owners is more of a long term economics answer rather than an immediate incompatibility issue.

Remember those old cassette tape adapters that had the wire attached to them so you could play your portable cd player in the car that only had a cassette slot? I guess I'm saying it's probably better to just put a cd player in the dash rather than buying the adapter.
So really it would be a question of what an aircraft owner wants for their future, in addition to this...
