It is rugged, easy to use, well designed. However for smaller aircraft I find the Coast PX20 more practical.July 28, 2018Purchased

9 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesExcellent two-switch flashlightThis is a great Aviation flashlight. I love the ease of selecting either the Red light with its own dedicated switch or the very bright white light using that switch. Other flashlights have one switch that you cycle through - but not this one. They’ve thought of everything!December 31, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 9 questions Browse 9 questions and 13 answershow many lumens does it has?Lumens?BEST ANSWER: Not sure of the lumens, but the white is bright enough for pitch black preflight while the dual red modes work well for cockpit environments.does this flashlight have any way to attach a tether?BEST ANSWER: The S&W Captain's flashlight does indeed have two small holes on a flange of the end cap, for attaching some sort of lanyard or tether. You cannot see the holes in the photos; they measure around 2mm x 4mm each (oblong), spaced about 7 mm apart center to center.I am training as a First Officer, not a Captain. Can I use this flashlight?BEST ANSWER: We'll allow it. ;)what does it weigh?BEST ANSWER: Just the flashlight itself, with 3 batteries installed, weighs 7 oz. The flashlight in its case, with 3 spare batteries in the pouch, weighs 9.5 oz. total.Is this flashlight 2-D cell?BEST ANSWER: This flashlight operates on three AAA batteriesIs it water proof?BEST ANSWER: The battery cap is gasketed and the switches have rubber boots, so the flashlight is certainly water-resistant. The front lens is made of a relatively thin plastic, so I do not believe that the light is intended for use underwater, or as a dive light!
-JohnHow is this different than the S&W Galaxy 13?BEST ANSWER: The main difference is that it features a 1 red LED mode. We find the 3 red LEDs to be too bright in the cockpit most of the time, so this lets you select 1 or 3.what is the warranty ?BEST ANSWER: Lifetime.
