So much brighter than the standard halogen globe landing light I had in my Mooney 201. The PAR46 light was easy to install and a direct replacement - went without a hitch. Great light and draws significantly less amps than the halogen.
Perfect fit, VERY bright, low amp draw. Should have done this long ago.
Easy installation, works great so far. Way brighter than the regular landing light bulb.
Yes, LED is worth the price! First night we got a comment from another aircraft 5+ miles away that thought our Mooney was an airliner. Never have to worry if it’s burned out or not when we need it in a busy terminal area.
Outstanding light. Drop in replacement for OEM light. Expensive but worth the money when you’re ready for an upgrade.
I returned this item but have not seen the refund in my paypal account.
Finally had a night landing and all I can say is WOW, compared to my previous GE bulb! I could see the runway much further out and the beam width is perfect! Runs so cool & low power, I leave it on during my entire flight…well daytime anyway…I mean why not right? LED lights should be your first upgrade!
Works great. Much brighter than my old light.
Good light. Expensive but good. Fit right in.

Yes, the GE-4522 is a PAR 46 lamp. The Whelen Parmetheus Plus (part # 11-12980) is a PAR 46 as well. Both are 14v. You are correct, 11-12980 is the correct LED replacement for your lamp.
Yes, this is the correct light for your aircraft as this is stated on the STC in the documents tab. This can be used for both landing and taxi light.
Yes, this will work with a wig wag module.
This light has 105,000 beam candlepower.
The install guide notes, "if required install the rubber gasket." It is not required on all installs.
The reference to the TIR optic means that the light has some peripheral light that will give off extra illumination as a taxi light yet the main beam of the light is 10 degrees and is utilized a spot / landing light. Being that there are 18 LEDs in this assembly it will also have some extra light from the edges of each TIR to work as a taxi light.
Yes, this has been replaced with part # 11-19156.
