Landing Lights

CEF is a leading manufacturer of actuated or retractable landing lights for commercial and military aircraft applications.  We combine our expertise in actuation and design to produce reliable retractable 28Vdc landing lights, aircraft tested in speeds up to Mach .5, with lamps lasting up to three (3) times longer than some competitors and meeting all of the rigorous requirements of MIL-L-81174, MIL-STD-810E or MIL-STD-810C.

The housing for our actuated motor and gear assembly is completely sealed from the environment with our gears lubricated for the life of the unit providing outstanding reliability. Lamps are easily replaceable with standard hand tools. The lamp retaining band positively retains the lamp under all design and vibration conditions. The bulb is secured with a positive screw type clamp, preventing inadvertent loss of the bulb in flight.
