Application of LED in Aircraft Lighting

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 259)


Aircraft lighting is an important branch of lighting technology in aviation flight domain. Lighting technology in aircraft of every period indicates the feature of lighting technology in certain extent. This paper summarizes the development of LED lighting technology and its application in aircraft cockpit, cabin, and exterior lighting. Thanks to a lot of advantages of LED lighting such as its efficiency, flexibility of optical design, color rendering and lifetime, it is more and more widely used in aircraft lighting, providing some good solutions for the reliability, security, comfort, and economy of aircraft lighting.
