Reliable Gear for Real AviatorsFlight Outfitters Logo

Flying at night in adverse conditions can be a daunting task. Having both hands free to handle the workload during these tense situations is extremely important. This dual colored headlamp puts the right type of lighting right where you need it without tying up your hands. Dual switches allow you to turn on just the white light, or just the red light. This means you don’t have to scroll through different lights and ruin your night vision. Each color of light has a high and low setting to maximize battery life. The elastic band is adjustable and extremely soft so it stays comfortable on long flights. Uses 3AAA batteries (included).

Features:
• White LED flood light for preflight
• Red LED to preserve night vision
• High and low settings
• Focusing white flood light
• Pivoting attachment point
• Adjustable elastic band
• Can also be used as flashlight

Lightweight Easy to Use Headlamp
I have several headlamps for hunting. What I love uniquely about this one for pilots is that it is extremely lightweight and easy to use. I don't need a lot of features or an app-driven light with lots of lighting profiles like my hunting headlamps. I just need a basic, reliable, light with two colors (white and red) that is easy to use. And this light does just that perfectly!

Decent for the price
This was my first headlamp I've purchased. The RED light button did not work on the first lamp I ordered. I called Sporty's and they quickly replaced it with another, which works perfectly. I feel I couldn't give it excellent marks because of this. However, the second lamp has worked as it should since I have had it.

Great product. Comfortable, with an easily adjustable tilt that stays in place well. The red light with two brightness settings is perfect for night flight.

An absolute must-have. I don't go up without it. Period.
I've been using mine for over two years, and I can't imagine flying at night without it. The white light is perfect for preflight, and the dimmable red light is perfect for clicking on as needed during flight.

It stays in my flight bag, along with extra batteries.

Ease of dual color use.
My use is not aeronautical, but astronomical, therefore may be of less use for pilots. I have multiple units and all continue to work over several years. They are not physically abused, repeatedly tilted, nor is white frequently refocused. The variation between units in red uniformity/smoothness of illumination (chart reading) and white irregular zooming (end of session checking) are both troublesome, but the separate white and red switches are of great value; 2 levels of illumination is not useful to me but may be for others.

Broken on Third Use
The light itself is great. White is bright, so is the red (almost too bright for cockpit use). The light broke off of the mount on the third use.

Functions well, priced well
It's a functional headlamp optimized for pilots at a college student-affordable price point. It seems well constructed and was comfortable to wear under a headset for the duration of a typical training night cross country.

My only major concern is that the advertised battery life is rather poor compared to LED headlamps I've seen that had similar levels of functionality. I also wish that the dim white would come on before the bright white just in case a red light wasn't doing it, but at least the red light does that and there's no chance of turning on the wrong color by accident.

Overall, I am happy with this purchase.

Do you have to go through white to get to red? Or can you turn red on and off without going through white?
Ted B on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can go right to red, no need to scroll through. There are independent buttons.
What is the battery life?
Richard D on Oct 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Considering I have not used the Dual Color Pilot's Headlamp much, I would consider the batery life to be long. In any case, not matter what battery dependent device you carry in your flight bag, carry a back-up set of batteries. They are not costly and recylcing every-there month, that is a new battery set is a good practice.
