Compact Solar Runway Light

Compact Solar Runway Light

Complies with:

  • FAA L-861 MIRL / L-860 LIRL / L-862 / L-863 portable
  • ICAO Annex 14 non-precision / non-instrument
  • TP312 5.3.25


The Compact Solar Runway Light meets FAA and ICAO requirements for medium intensity runway edge lights, runway threshold lights, runway end lights and simple approach lighting. The Solar Runway Light is available in 3 battery sizes enabling up to 1000 hours of runtime and worldwide use. It is lower cost than traditional runway lighting — with no sacrifice in quality, durability or service.

Powered by high-endurance batteries designed for aerospace with a lifetime of over 2500 cycles, the Compact Solar Runway Lights are built to last for over 20 years, with no maintenance for 7 years on average. When it’s time to perform maintenance, there is a process easy, so your runway stays operational without interruption.
