A Brief History
LFD Limited was set up in 1989 in Gosport and rapidly acquired a market leading position for the supply of covert and visible lights to military aircraft customers on both fixed and rotary wing platforms.
LFD has recently consolidated all its facilities into one site at Zenith House, Gosport.
LFD is proud to be selected by Leonardo as part of Team AW149 UK
The UK AW149 would be built in Yeovil, Somerset and draw on a UK-wide supply chain of more than 70 organisations. LFD is one of the first suppliers to be announced as a team member.
Len Fleck, LFD’s Managing Director said: “LFD has been fortunate to work in a close and successful relationship with Leonardo Helicopters. Leonardo has generously given its support to help LFD in designing and developing world beating aircraft lighting systems. LFD supplies lighting kits for most Leonardo platforms including the AW149, AW159, and AW101. As a small team of 15 staff we are proud and appreciative of our relationship with Leonardo and its support to the UK aerospace industry.”
