LoPresti Aviation holds PMA and STCS for many drag reducing, efficiency increasing modifications. LoPresti also manufactures PMA replacement parts and holds approximately 400+ STCs for aircraft landing and taxi light installations. We have supplied parts to Hawker Beechcraft, Cirrus Aircraft, Piper Aircraft, Adam Aircraft and Maule Aircraft production lines to support their production.
The BoomBeam HID landing and taxi lighting is the company focus. LoPresti also provides engineering design services to aircraft manufactures to solve problems or to improve their products. Our core competency is landing and taxi light installations, and aircraft performance improvement.
GLENN BJORKMANWe are a firm believer in this lighting system as a great safety tool on our aircraft, such a believer that I installed them on my personal Cessna 180. Thank you LoPresti for saving us from a very unfortunate situation!
MARK JONESI have to say this about the LoPresti BoomBeam HID light system or the HS125. They work great. Our Company was one of the first to try the original LoPresti HID BoomBeams and now the X2 BoomBeam System upgrade. 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 that the original BoomBeam. Since I am a Crew Member and Technician, I see the BoomBeam Mod from both sides and they succeed in all areas: Reliability, Maintainability and (most of all) Cost Effectiveness. Each time a light is replaced the wing lens must removed and resealed - this is downtime and the BoomBeams have eliminated this issue!
JOHNNY CARTERJust a word about the BoomBeam I had installed on our PC12. It was just a snap to replace our factory landing lights. WOW what a difference. I really noticed the much imporved lighting on night landings. However, a real plus for me is the added recognition in day time operations.
