Jan. 10, 2008, Vero Beach, FL –
The FAA granted LoPresti SpeedMerchants the STC for its HID lighting on
Bell 206 helicopters.  LoPresti BoomBeams DOUBLES the landing light output, and gives
the pilot 10 TIMES the available light for taxiing. More light, more
visibility, improved awareness and safety.

"The lights are a superior installation," remarked Dick Sinnot,
Chief Pilot, PWB Leasing. "Main advantage is that there is no "splash
back" of light into the cockpit as with the original installation,
especially when near or on the ground. Also, the beam is visible on the
ground from about 700 or 800 feet of altitude."

The installation is mounted in the same OEM location on the Bell
206, using the LoPresti designed bracket. Minimum down time for
installation makes this process a quick one for this premier industry
performer. LoPresti SpeedMerchants holds over 300 STCs for HID lighting
in the general aviation market.
