Airport Hangar Lighting Case Study: 400W HID to 130W LED Highbay


Customer Profile:

Since the merger of Page AvJet and Butler Aviation in 1992, Signature Flight Support has grown to become the world’s largest network of Fixed Base Operations (FBOs). With over 200 locations providing consistent, exceptional service, Signature’s worldwide network of FBOs delivers essential support services for business and private aviation, including refueling, hangarage, maintenance, repair and overhaul, and a variety of other world-class amenities with exceptional customer service.


Signature Flight had an airport hangar that they wanted to convert to LED, so they enlisted Premier Lighting to find the ideal LED solution. The reasons to convert were the same as many others; to reduce energy usage and to improve on light levels from the 400W metal halides, which were rapidly depreciating in light output.


Before: 400W Metal Halide Highbays


After: New 130W LED Highbay Fixtures


There aren’t many left anymore, but when you come across HID highbay fixtures it is a no brainer to convert them to LED highbays. Signature Flight now gets to reap the benefits of 75% energy savings and instant on/off functionality in addition to much brighter and more evenly distributed light. Thanks to the new long-lasting LED highbay fixtures, Signature Flight is set to reach payback in less than two years.
