Ideal for unmanned airfields and control towers, PALC (Pilot Activated Lighting Control) allows pilots to activate and manage the intensity of airfield lights on approach. The PALC pilot activated lighting control system provides air-to-ground (Type I) radio control of solar LED airfield products.  The pilot controlled lighting system allows for remote activation of your airfield’s lights and their intensity by keying the microphone button of the pilot’s standard VHF communication transmitter. Airport operators benefit from maximum runway usage while minimizing energy expenditure and increasing the performance capabilities of our solar airfield lighting.
