Aircraft cabin lighting specialist, STG Aerospace has announced that its Airbus liTeMood system is now FAA certified for the Airbus A318, A319, A320 and A321 aircraft types. This approval follows the EASA certification that the company was awarded in August of this year.
Dr Sean O’Kell, director of innovation at STG Aerospace, commented, “Airbus liTeMood is an easily retrofitted lighting system that can truly transform the experience of all passengers onboard an A320-family aircraft. Winning both EASA and now FAA certification is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the STG Aerospace team.”
Airbus liTeMood is a programmable retrofit lighting system with a choice of over 16 million colors and options to create bespoke scenes in minutes using an infrared wand, from northern lights to sunrises and sunsets to national celebrations. Further claimed benefits include installation in less than six hours with no changes required to the aircraft’s wiring or control panels, an MTBF in excess of 55,000 operating hours, a weight saving of up to 20kg on an A320, and a reduction in power usage of 55% compared with some incumbent systems.
