PWI Announces New Distributor
PWI and Aerospace Products, Inc. Sign Distribution Partnership
January 9, 2018 Wichita, KS: PWI is proud to announce their new distribution partnership with Aerospace Products, Inc.
Based in Wichita, Kansas like PWI, Aerospace Products (API) is a long-standing business that strives to bring “Excellence in Aerospace” to the aviation community. They ship their products worldwide and will now be adding PWI’s King Air Retrofits and LED Drop-in Replacement Reading Lights to their product list. API’s expertise is solving customer’s window problems or handling flight control component issues by replacing, repairing or overhauling with original factory OEM or PMA manufactured parts.
“This partnership, here in the ‘Air Capital of the World,’ is an amazing opportunity,” says Robi Lorik, President of PWI. “With this continuing momentum, soon there won’t be a King Air without our lights!”
The products that API will be including in their line-up include PWI’s latest LED reading light, the 1495, as well as their other models: the 303 and 1308. All of the reading lights feature PWI-exclusive heat-reducing technology that allows the lights to run cooler than not only incandescents, but even competitors’ LED products as well. They also have a vastly increased lifespan from their incandescent counterparts, as well as a brighter and more directed light for better illumination.
API will also include PWI’s line of LED cabin lighting retrofits for King Air series’ 300, 200, 100, and 90. These retrofits are “plug ‘n play” style, so they are designed to be simply swapped out for the existing lighting fixtures and power supplies, removing the need to redo the interior or change harnesses. They also feature the up-to-100,000-hour lifespan, run cooler than the fluorescents, and almost never need replacing.

February 21, 2017 Wichita, KS: PWI and Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, have signed an agreement to include PWI’s LED product lines in Textron Aviation’s new Aftermarket Product Catalog. The product lines include PWI’s drop-in LED reading lights and Beechcraft King Air Retrofit (KAR) Kits, which are LED upgrade kits for a King Air’s cabin lighting. Textron Aviation’s Aftermarket Product Catalog is available to all King Air MROs and owners.
PWI’s King Air Retrofit (KAR) Kits are available in two models: the KAR 200, which can be applied to King Air 90, 100, and 200 series, and the KAR 300, which can go on the 300, B300, and B300C series. The KAR 200, which is a replacement for the lighting over the cabin windows, and the KAR 300, which replaces the centerline overhead lights, offer many advantages over fluorescent lighting, such as reducing weight by about half, 40% lower system operating temperature, a life span of over 100,000 hours, and acts as a direct fit, form, and function replacement for the current lighting system.
PWI’s LED drop-in reading lights come in four models currently: the 303X, which has PMA; the 1495 and 1308, which are completed products awaiting PMA approval; and the 1683, which is nearing the end of its prototype phase. They offer significant advantages over the existing lights, namely that the LED lights feature PWI’s exclusive heat-eliminating technology that makes the LED lights cool to the touch, have a very long operating life, and no EMI.
“This will allow King Air owners worldwide to upgrade their aircraft with PWI- lighting systems,” says Robi Lorik, President of PWI.
PWI and Textron Aviation will be co-hosting a webinar to further explain the products to potential customers, with a Q&A to follow. The webinar’s date is still to be announced.
PWI and Textron Aviation have enjoyed a long relationship, which is further strengthened with the addition of PWI to the company’s Catalog.
PWI will be attending the upcoming AEA convention in New Orleans on March 14-16, 2017, at Booth 621, or at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas on October 10-12, 2017. For more information, please feel free to contact PWI at 316-942-2811 or contact the President, Robi Lorik, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit our website at pwi-e.com.
PWI and Australian Avionics, one of the premier distributors in all of Australia, have partnered up to bring PWI’s LED lighting products to the Australian market. PWI will be providing them with LED reading lights and LED upgrade kits for King Air aircraft. PWI’s KAR Kits provide a “Plug ‘n Play” style installation, removing the need to rewire anything or rebuild any connectors and our drop-in LED reading lights employ groundbreaking new technology that almost eliminates any excess heat production and.
“Hawker Pacific Avionics is extremely excited to support PWI as their Distributor in the Australasian region, the LED kits are a great new product line for the King Air retrofit market,” said Jeff Gribble of Australian Avionics.
Robi Lorik, President of PWI, had this to say “Australian Avionics is providing us with an excellent opportunity to break into the Australian aircraft lighting market. Together, we aim to establish PWI as a household name in the Australian aviation community.”
PWI’s drop-in LED reading lights are quite the improvement from incandescent bulbs, offering a very low operating temperature and greater illumination. The reading lights were also recently featured in a King Air Nation article at http://kingairnation.com/pwi-releases-new-king-air-focused-led-lighting-with-cool-running-leds. The KAR Kits will fit in a wide variety of King Airs, with KAR 200 working with any 90, 100, and 200 series King Air, and the KAR 300 working with any from the 300, B300, and B300C series.
November 28, 2016 Wichita, KS: PWI has recently directed its engineering department
to create a 5-year product development road map that will define our future product specifications. The road map will include a marketing strategy, a budgeting process, and an ROI time frame. As a result, PWI will be able to prioritize their efforts and quantify product development and sales cycles. Within 24 months, they expect to significantly increase their revenue line and recoup any R&D expenditures. PWI currently manufactures and sells Flux Gate Magnetometers only to OEM customers, however, they intend to soon expand sales into other markets.
Magnetometers are a very complex technology, even at the basic level, but, in short, a magnetometer detects anomalies in the Earth’s magnetic field. Of such magnetometers, PWI’s are some of the most sensitive in the world. This can be done at great distances and without physical contact. Flux Gate Magnetometers, which PWI
sells, are fabricated from very exotic metallic alloys using high-temp, hydrogen-filled ovens. They must be integrated into very unique electronic circuits that detect the magnetic fluctuations, and then present the data to the user in a manner that is meaningful to the application.
Magnetometers are useful in a wide variety of applications: they were originally designed during WWII for locating submarines and, while they are still used in that capacity, they have also found uses in interplanetary space vehicles, cell phones, border patrol breaches, security systems for airports, and explosive detection. These are but a few of the many possible applications for magnetometers in today’s world.
When it became clear that the versatility of the magnetometers that PWI markets is much greater than previously thought, Judy Baldwin, PWI’s CEO said, “We will be the coolest kids on the magnetometer block! Who knew a small manufacturing company in Wichita, Kansas could affect the world’s security?”.
