Made in the USA flag


The HPLF is a combination of our LED heliport perimeter light and an LED floodlight intended to “wash” the pad with light.

The perimeter light is mounted on a powder coat painted cast aluminum housing secured by a stainless steel clamp band. The fixture body finish is aviation yellow. The HPLF mounts to a standard breakable coupling. The overall height is 16.25″.

Our heliport perimeter lights provide an LED based solution to the ICAO touchdown and lift-off area perimeter style of steady-burning lights. The lights are currently available with green, blue, red, clear, yellow or infrared LEDs operating at 100-277 VAC, 12-48 VDC, or 10-30 VDC (dimming).

LED Perimeter Light Visible/Infrared LED Option

Common LED lights can pose a hazard to pilots using Night Vision Goggles (NVGs). This is due to the fact that NVGs typically use filters to block cockpit lighting from saturating the imaging system. This has the unintended effect of making LED lights invisible to pilots. In response, we have incorporated NVG friendly technology into our perimeter light, giving pilots using night vision goggles unmatched visibility of the helipad touchdown and lift-off area (TLOF).

LED Perimeter Light Dimming Option

With the dimming option, the perimeter lights can be dimmed at night to reduce glare (floodlight does not dim). Three brightness levels can be selected. The dimming option is only available with a Flight Light 3-Step Dimming Controller.
