Steven Pate of El Paso
Texas has won a Free 'BoomBeam' prize from Lopresti SpeedMods. The
BoomBeam prize is awarded by a random drawing of registered
LoPresti newsletter recipients.
Steve started flying in 1970 and over the years has advanced to
a commercial certificate with SMELS/Glider/Instrument airplane
private privileges for helicopters and is a CFI/MEI/CFII, as well
as flying as a Mission Pilot for the Civil Air Patrol.
His current airplane is a 1978 Arrow III that he has been
gradually upgrading with new avionics and airframe modifications
including 'Speed Spats.'
“I was very impressed with the looks, engineering and
performance of the SPATS and even more important than the airframe
mods is the ability to see and be seen, " said Steve, "the new
BoomBeam will certainly make a great contribution to that end. I
really wanted the BoomBeam but I just kept putting off making the
purchase but now I have my eye on the LoPresti Cowling."
loprsti says the Boom Beam HID lighting systems improve
lighting in most cases by more than 500% and consists of a power
supply, shielded high voltage wire harness, plug in HID lamp,
mounting hardware, and a choice of lens reflector assemblies.
These systems are available in 14 and 28 volt certified versions
with pricing from $948. Non certified systems from $449.
