For my new 1997 M20R D-reg I´m looking for the appropiate lights. Porta Air Service said, that non of the LED bulbs have the EASA STC. Has anyone a better answer? I need to new strobe lights and it would be wonderful to just LED them. Also landing/taxi or recognition is interesting. Any ideas?

I believe there are discussions ongoing between EASA and the FAA for mutual recognition of STCs issued by the country of origin of the airframe....in other words it may be possible soon to use FAA STCs on EASA registered Mooneys... Perhaps someone more informed can comment.

with regards to landing/taxi LED lights.
I got them installed and I am disappointed. From ground to air they look smashing bright. Air to ground the old traditional ones are better. I am missing the beam function of the old ones. These LED-light wave length seem to disperse and spread away rather than creating a directed beam to the touch down zone. I gained my experience while flying regularly from EDMY to Aberdeen and return every week, most time landing after sunset. I can not recommend to spend a lot of money on those led bulbs. I guess this is the reason why the new factory Mooneys are NOT equipped with LED taxi and landing light but with Xenon lamps. An experienced flight instructor who flew them installed in a Cessna 172 and in a Piper PA 28 reported the same experience. May be the efficiency is further reduced because they are mounted deep in the wing.
