We tell you about implementing light-signal equipment of helipads on the example of equipping the helipad for AgustaWestland AW139 helicopters in Chair Park, Republic of Crimea
To perform flights at night, the helipad employs light-signaling equipment, which illuminates the main elements of the pad.
The type of lighting equipment depends on the type of pavement, the preferences for the helipads' visual aspect.
The main possible variants of the lights are agreed with the customer:
In general, helipads are equipped with:
In some circumstances, additional equipment, such as final approach and take-off areas lights (FATO), restrictor lights, glide lights and others, are provided depending on helipad location and parameters.
If it is necessary to illuminate high-rise obstacles, barrier lights in red color shall be installed.
We developed the detailed design documentation for the installation of lighting equipment following the requirements of regulatory documents.
Due to the lack of requirements for lighting equipment at helipads in the Russian regulatory framework, we are guided in the design of facilities by ICAO requirements.
The amount of lighting equipment depends directly on the helipad configuration.
We prepared a detailed quotation for the supply of equipment, taking into account the tightest possible deadlines.
To date, we single out the following companies on the Russian market of manufacturers and suppliers of lighting equipment:
Each company has its own line of lighting equipment for helipads.
We agree with the customer each supplier.
The works were performed following the prepared detailed design documentation.
The turnaround time is about 20 calendar days.
In compliance with the requirements of the Order of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation No. 1 dated 18 January 2005.
Upon completion of construction, installation and pre-commissioning works, we inspected the equipment with representatives of the operating organization and performed a flight over the helipad.
