Samson Drop-In Plus


An extremely powerful multi-fucntion landing, taxi and recognition wigwag light, the Samson is also used in search lights and scene lights by rescue and security and military helicopters. Replacement for Legacy Lights. A PAR 46 drop-in with the legendary Samson power!


27 High brightness LEDs for LANDING light coverage

Packed with 27 ultra high brightness CREE aviation white LEDs for LANDING mode.

18 High brightness LEDs for TAXI and WIGWAG mode

Packed with 18 ultra high brightness CREE aviation white LEDs for TAXI and WIGWAG mode.

45 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 Samson™ 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!
