Seminar Description: Advancements in Lighting Technology

Lighting for emergency vehicles and the aviation community served by Whelen Engineering has enjoyed a mini revolution since the mid 90s.  Our discussion will describe the differences in lighting technologies (LED, Xenon Strobe & halogen), the standards & regulations which drive the designs and our challenges as a manufacturer to deliver the newest lighting packages.  We will demonstrate products and review examples of recent aviation lighting ‘firsts’ with some well known aviation manufacturers.


If you are definitely interested in seeing first-hand how amazing this new lighting technology is for your aviation or emergency vehicle operation – bring your family and join us for a day of education and inspiration. Fill in the form below to RSVP to this special event.

UPDATE JUNE 14th: Saturday & Sunday’s chalet is full – thank you for all of your RSVPs!

We look forward to seeing you!
