Everything on this old Cessna works, but on equipment this old you can lose an instrument light or two. Flew two ILS approaches tonight with the light out for the primary ILS heads. Shined the map light on it and used the red light on my new flashlight to read the plate. Yes, happy. Quality product with two levels of red brightness. Low was just right.September 29, 2019Purchased

Inside the cockpit; the red light provides ample illumination while also protecting critical night vision. This is a well-made all-in-one professional tool.December 23, 2018Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 12 questions Browse 12 questions and 15 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.I am training as a First Officer, not a Captain. Can I use this flashlight?BEST ANSWER: We'll allow it. ;)Could you pls provide a photo of the holster? I am replacing a small Mag light in the flight deck and need to make sure it will fit/attach in a similar waywhat is the warranty ?BEST ANSWER: Lifetime.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.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.Sufficient for night walk around of large commercial jet?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it would be sufficient for your purpose.What are the dimensions of the flashlight with thickness of the handle?BEST ANSWER: The flashlight is 6 1/2" long and approximately 1" in diameter.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.
