Paul Rosales's RV6A panel
picture shows Paul Rosales's RV6A Panel. He installed FiberLites
on six 3 1/8" instruments and four 2 1/4" instruments,
plus he used FiberLite labels to illuminate the wording for
his switches. The lettering is now as easy to read at nighttime as it is during the daytime. Paul was extremely
pleased with the results (and the economical costs compared to other
lighting systems). We congratulate Paul on his winning an
outstanding workmanship award at Oshkosh!

FiberLites Installation on the 8 Main Flight Instruments
was sent to us by a very satisfied customer that installed FiberLites
in his Piper. He was tired of flying at night with poorly
illuminated instruments. He is extremely with the lighting
provided by the FiberLites and the clean look of the
of the instruments on this Cessna 210 panel are illuminated with
FiberLites. Two easily accessible FiberLite light sources
illuminate most of instruments on this panel. SPT also
manufactured a new, reverse-engraved overlay for the panel.
French, the proud owner of this Stinson, made his own panel with a wood
overlay. He was extremely pleased with the lighting provided by
the FiberLite Instrument Lighting System. He illuminated all
instruments the panel with FiberLites except for the internally
is not easy to get a good digital picture with low light, but Gene did a
good job with this picture. As you can see, the FiberLites provide
even 360 degree lighting around the instruments. Also
illuminated are the N number and the labels for the switches.
Click on this picture to see the FiberLite labels. They are
backlit with fiber optics. They are as easy to read at night as during the day. You send us the distances between the
center points of the switches/breakers and the wording and we custom-make labels to fit your layout. A small hole drilled through the
panel allows the fiber optics to be routed back to the light source.
The hole is covered by the label.
on the right shows the reverse-engraved center
console cover that we are making for the new Micco Aircraft that
recently received certification.
We were able to backlight all the wording on the console with 12
fiber-optic ribbons of various sizes. The fiber optics are
illuminated with miniature remote light sources that have a
current draw of only .02 amps each and a 40,000 hour rated
life!! SPT is now working with several other
aircraft manufacturers to light the panels of several other new
designs. SPT can work with you to make a
custom, reverse-engraved panel that is backlit with our fiber optics.
