Elevated Fato

The Heliport FATO is a steady omnidirectional white light designed for marking the Final Approach and Take-off Area (FATO) area.

A lighting system must be present on the heliports where night operations are conducted.

These lights should be located on FATO boundaries. If the FATO is a circle you need a minimum of 10 lights and the distance between the lights must be a maximum of 5 m. If the TLOF is a square you need a minimum of 4 lights for each side and the distance between lights must be a maximum of 50 meters.

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

Electrical specification

  • 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 12W


  • FATO 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
