New cabin lighting certifications for Bruce Aerospace


April 7, 2015 – Cabin lighting company Bruce Aerospace has added two new aircraft to its list of certified platforms. The first is an Air France Airbus A319, as part of the airline’s medium-haul cabin upgrade scheme, with Air France Industries in Toulouse France fitting the XLume LED lighting. The certification covers the installation of new ‘plug & play’ sidewall, ceiling, entry and lavatory lights in single white and two-color options. Air France has selected the two-color option of white and amber. The lights in all four locations retain the same part number but have selectable scenarios.

The installation of the ‘plug & play’ LED fixtures was accomplished using the existing wiring and controls for the previous fluorescent cabin lighting fixtures, and Bruce Aerospace estimates an LED life of over 60,000 hours.

Bruce Aerospace has also added the Airbus A330 to its list of certified platforms for the white/bi-color LED lighting product line after the system was selected by Qantas. The lighting enhancement installation forms part of the airline’s reconfiguration program of its A330 aircraft which are deployed on main East/West trunk routes and long-haul services from Australia to key destinations in Asia. Three aircraft featuring the new LED system are now in service.
