Well I can tell you about the lights on the Saab 340B which I work on.
The landing lights are rated at 200 watts and last about 200 hours
depending on if the pilots are landing with the auto-pilot are by hand. As
far as I can tell there made of glass like the auto headlights, Thiers
been times when I've replaced them and found them shatted in the fixture.

Hope these helps
