Re: LED Wing tip lights?
Unless something's changed, almost the entire AVEO line of lighting is for experimentals only. Unless you are an OEM, you can't put non-TSO'd or PMA'd or STC'd lighting on a certified airplane. An OEM can buy off these lights under their own QC program. For the rest of us, there is no easy way to do it except by field approval.
Only the Aveoflash LSA wingtip lights are offered for certified planes via 337 approval, and even that doesn't claim they hold an STC. If it's field approved 337 only, that's a big drawback.
I looked at AVEO'S website, and it is misleading. No where does it say they have an FAA authorizations for all the products listed under the GA lighting. They imply it by using pictures of GA airplanes.
It's too bad because they have some pretty cool stuff.
