Elevated Approach

The Heliport APPROACH lights are steady and flashing omnidirectional white lights.

According to ICAO ANNEX 14, volume II, an approach lighting system should be provided at a heliport where it is desirable and practicable to indicate a preferred approach direction.

These lights should form a cross to create the Approach lighting system.

The approach lighting system is a row of three lights at 30 m intervals and a crossbar of five lights on 18 m at a distance of 90 m from the perimeter of the FATO.

Where there is the need to make the final approach course more conspicuous, additional lights spaced uniformly at 30 m intervals should be added beyond the
crossbar. The lights beyond the crossbar may be steady or sequenced flashing, depending upon the environment.

  • The mounting system is elevated, fixed on a base plate with a frangible coupling
  • The casing is made of powder-coated aluminum
  • The diffuser is made of clear polycarbonate UV protected

Electrical characteristics

  • The power supply can be a heliport controller. In this case, the control is also made in three steps from the heliport controller. Power input can be low voltage, 48 V DC or it can work in constant current when the distance from the heliport controller to the lights is long and this will generate a big drop of voltage on cables.
  • Optionally it can be powered at 90-230V, 50/60Hz but the light fixtures will no longer have the dimming function
  • The total power is just 15W
  • If the sequenced flashing is needed then a flashing controller must be added to the control system


  • APPROACH heliport elevated lights were tested for working environments from -50 to + 50 °C
  • The degree of protection is IP 67
  • The exposed surface to the wind is low so it can withstand strong wind
  • UV protected polycarbonate makes it resistant to sun radiation

Optical characteristics

  • The light source is made with WHITE LEDs and special lenses to obtain the ICAO specifications
  • The color and lights distribution passes the tests according to ICAO into an external recognised laboratory
  • The expected lifetime for LEDs is more than 100000 working hours


•  Surface or ground Heliports and Helipads
