The LED HAPI designed specifically for off-grid helipads is the most efficient LED HAPI lighting solution capable of operating on solar power. The LED HAPI lighting system complies as a visual approach aid for use in flight conditions providing the helicopter pilot with a stabilized glide path signal by means of a single light source from a position adjacent to the intended touchdown point and can be used for both Fixed Wing or Helicopter operations.
Using an LED HAPI, helicopter pilots can easily determine if their approach angle is too high, slightly too low, too low, or correctly on glide path through combinations of red and green lights. The LED HAPI is available with multiple configuration options to comply to ICAO requirements for onshore, offshore and helideck requirements. The LED HAPI is capable of adjustment in elevation at any desired angle between 1 and 12 degrees above the horizontal with an accuracy of +/- 5 minutes of arc using the built in monitor. The LED HAPI will switch off atomically when the vertical misalignment of a unit exceeds ±0.5 degrees (±30 minutes).
