Windsock Lighting for Surface Helipad at Canadian Hospital
Windsock Lighting Solution. Aviation Renewables has delivered a Solar Series Permanent LED Windsock Lighting for a surface helipad at a canadian hospital in Manitoba. The constructor was contracted to procure and install a permanent wind cone for the hospital that complies to ICAO Annex 14, Vol2, 5.1.1 for surface helipads. The addition of the new concrete helipad and the internally lit wind cone will provide the air ambulance pilots with a more visible and safe landing zone.
Windsock and the Power System
The patented swivel allows the tower, the wind sock and the power system to be one single unit versus a wind cone with a detached power system. This allows for quick installation and simple, one-person maintenance. The internal LED lighting is 10 times more energy efficient than an externally incandescent lit windsock. The vivid internally lit fixture also allows for precisely directed illumination keeping the light where the pilot needs it to be reducing glare and potential distraction.
