A704-VL Solar Helipad Lights

Heliport lighting and helipad landing lights

Solar helipad lights and heliport lighting systems are a dependable alternative to a generator or grid-powered lighting for ground, rooftop, offshore, temporary or remote heliports. The A704-VL meets traditional heliport lighting requirements in an easy-to-install, low maintenance package.

 

Our helipad landing lights are ICAO and FAA compliant, third-party tested and available in 3 solar engine sizes. Built on a proven technology platform, we can customize helipad landing light systems for the world’s toughest environments.

 

Applications

  • Helipad lights
  • Touchdown and lift-off area (TLOF)
  • Final approach and take-off area (FATO)
  • Taxiway lighting
  • NVG operations
  • Emergency or temporary helipad operations

Compliant to International Lighting Standards

  • FAA L-860HR
  • ICAO TLOF
  • ICAO FATO

 

Easy Installation

Limited crew, no trenching, no airfield interruptions. Just place the A704-VL and it emits light dusk-to-dawn while maintaining its battery. Optional wireless control via handheld programmer provides on-demand operation from up to 2.5 miles (4 km) away.

 

Low Maintenance

The A704-VL integrates solar panels, battery, electronics and LED light source into a compact, stand-alone unit requiring minimal maintenance. The replaceable battery extends service life well beyond 5 years.

 

Unprecendeted Reliable

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.

 

Trusted

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