September 3, 2015 – Aircraft lighting specialist, STG Aerospace, has secured an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its liTeMood LED cabin lighting system on the Boeing 737NG.
This milestone forms part of the company’s plan to certify liTeMood for global coverage, and was achieved following selection by charter flight operator Miami Air International to retrofit liTeMood on its B737-800 aircraft.
Marcus Williams, STG Aerospace’s director of global sales, commented, “This is major step forward for STG Aerospace. Whilst liTeMood has been successfully installed on many airlines in Europe and Latin America, the Miami Air installation is our first US award and validates our installation benefits and customer value with a noteworthy US operator. Having now secured an FAA STC for the Boeing 737NG, we look forward to bringing the benefits of a liTeMood solution to other airlines in the US and throughout the Americas.”
Jim Proia, Miami Air International’s CEO, added, “The many operational benefits of liTeMood were immediately obvious to us, including the significant weight reduction and increased reliability, but the simplicity and speed of the installation was particularly impressive. Without having to make any aircraft-side changes, we have dramatically improved cabin appearance, creating an enhanced onboard experience for our guests.”
