Aircraft Lighting

Setting the Standard and Shaping the Future of Aircraft Lighting Since 1933

A leader in aircraft lighting systems since 1933, Honeywell Aerospace and its legacy company Grimes Aerospace, has the broadest portfolio and installed base in the industry.

Since the beginning, our goal has always been to provide our customers with world-class lighting products that increase safety and require very little maintenance to minimize delays and lower operating costs.

LED Aircraft Lighting

Light emitting diode (LED) technology improves reliability, is simple to install and reduces maintenance costs by up to 70 percent over legacy products.

We’re able to provide comprehensive lighting solutions for any lighting position on any airframe and we’re proud to offer a complete suite of LED aircraft lights.

In addition to lower operating costs, our LED aircraft lighting offer lower power input requirements, weight reduction, increased light intensity and modular designs with sub-assembly parts reducing inventory spare parts requirements. 

Honeywell has been developing LED solutions for more than two decades and we stand firm in our commitment to technological leadership, continued engineering excellence and design efficiency for aircraft lighting solutions.
