Flashlights come in handy in all sorts of situations, from the mundane to the harrowing. Whether your favorite travel mug dropped beneath your car’s passenger seat, or you are warding off a nighttime bear attack during a camping trip, flashlights can be veritable lifesavers. And there are few professions where you will need a flashlight as consistently and crucially as in aviation.
Take your “preflight,” the checklist of actions you must complete prior to any takeoff. Many of these actions take place outside the aircraft, where there might not be sufficient light, or no light at all, depending on the time of day. You will need to check the auxiliary fuel pump, the instruments and radio, the flight controls, altimeter, and directional gyro, among other things. Without a flashlight, it can be difficult to accurately check these things, and you might be sacrificing safety and accuracy.
What’s more, not all flashlights are created equal. It may seem like a simple enough tool, but the quality among flashlights varies wildly, and if you pick up a cheap flashlight from a dollar store, you might find it not working when you most need it to. This is why pilots need to select their flashlights carefully.
Luckily for you, we know flashlights. We work with them on a daily basis in our own aviation duties and intimately know good from bad flashlights. But we have also spent the time to find the flashlights that are most useful for both pilots and non-pilots. In our collection, you will find lights that you can easily use on the airstrip and in your home; on your camping trip and in your vehicle.
