Hercules Drop-In Plus


AveoEngineering introduces the exclusive next-generation landing/taxi/wigwag light module. The undeniable favorite in all global side-by-side comparison tests, the Hercules features 3 modes in its standard build…. Landing, Taxi or WigWag. Replacement for Legacy Lights. A PAR 36 drop-in with the legendary Hercules power!


18 High brightness LEDs for LANDING light coverage

Packed with 18 ultra high brightness CREE aviation white LEDs for LANDING mode

12 High brightness LEDs for TAXI and WIGWAG mode

Packed with 12 ultra high brightness CREE aviation white LEDs for TAXI and WIGWAG mode

30 High brightness LEDs for FULL POWER with HIGH/LOW function

Waterproof / Shockproof / Dust-proof

All Aveo lights are waterproof, dust proof, and inert to most environmental conditions as they are all tested to categories of DO-160 exceeding the applicable requirements by far in external laboratories experienced in compliance demonstration of EASA ETSO appliances.

Environmentally Friendly

The Hercules™ uses far less power than competitive products illuminated by mercury-arc, high intensity discharge, or halogen lamps, which means they help to reduce air pollution from carbon emissions. Mercury and Lead-free, this RoHS compliant environmentally – friendly technology helps reduce power consumption and the amount of hazardous waste entering the environment. Finally, a “green” aircraft light!
