Advanced Optics

The PAPI and Abbreviated PAPI (APAPI) use patented, LED-based optics to achieve the lowest power consumption, highest intensity and sharpest white/red transition. It exceeds ICAO / FAA / STANAG requirements to provide a clear approach path to the aviator.


Easy Installation

PAPI lights work equally well in permanent and temporary aviation locations. Permanent mounting is easy with standard frangible mounting. Temporary deployment is fast with retractable legs and a lightweight, compact form factor. LED keypad designed for use with gloves. Removable, replaceable antenna.


Power Supply Versatility

The low power consumption of the PAPI light system makes it mate well with several available power supplies:

  • Solar kit
  • Generator kit
  • Battery kit
  • AC only (certified to FAA AC 150/5345-28H)



Control PAPI aviation lights with optional wireless control provides remote operation using either 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz communication. Local control and 3 and 5-step wired control are also available.
