A704 Solar MIRL Runway Lights

Runway edge, runway threshold and runway end lights

A704 solar MIRL runway lights meet FAA and ICAO requirements for medium intensity runway edge, runway threshold, runway end and simple approach lighting. The solar runway lights are available in 3 battery sizes enabling up to 1000 hours of runtime and worldwide use. The A704 solar runway light is lower cost than traditional runway lighting — with no sacrifice in quality, durability or service.


Powered by high-endurance batteries designed for aerospace with a lifetime of over 2500 cycles, our airfield lighting products are built to last for over 20 years, with no maintenance for 7 years on average. When it’s time to perform maintenance, we’ve made the process easy (less than 3 minutes per light) so your runway stays operational without interruption.

Easy Installation

Limited crew, no trenching, no airfield interruptions. Just place the A704 and it emits light dusk-to-dawn while maintaining its battery.


Low Maintenance

The A704 integrates solar panels, battery, electronics and LED light source into a compact, stand-alone unit requiring minimal maintenance for 7 years.



The Energy Management System (EMS) monitors all operations to provide consistent output in the harshest environments. Testing to ICAO, FAA and MIL specifications ensures high performance for many years.



With thousands of installations worldwide, Flash Technology solar LED lights operate year-round at over 500 airports and military bases.
