    Re: Under MIP Lighting?

    Hi Jeff,

    You didnt mention your type of aircraft, but in a real B737 there are two incandescent bulbs under the glare wings on each side. Under the center is four spread out evenly. Also, there is a white florescent 12" bulb and fixture under the center as well. You can switch on the florescent when doing pre/post flight.

    Jeff,
    I have the engravity glares, so I installed strip led's under the main section of glare and two smaller strips in the well areas of the glare wings.
    There is also a separate strip that illuminates the MCP.
    These are all hooked up to two separate FDS dimmer switches on the lower dash under the PFD/ND's.




    It works beautifully,
