The solar powered AV-70 is a field-proven aviation light that offers enormous benefits over traditional battery and hard-wired aviation lights, including low maintenance and no underground wiring.

These completely self-contained LED lights are designed to suit a range of aviation and general applications, including emergency airstrip, caution, taxiway, and threshold lighting.

The unit has two high-performance solar modules mounted within the lens, that maximize solar collection and provide reliable operation in a range of environmental conditions.

The focal plane of the light is designed to provide a vertical divergence of between 0 to +7°, and the user-replaceable battery ensures a service life of up to 12 years.


The AV-70 is made from tough, durable UV stabilized LEXAN® polycarbonate, and incorporates an internal photodiode for automatic night activation once the ambient light threshold drops sufficiently.

Completely self-contained and able to be installed in minutes, the AV-70 is the preferred choice for marking of remote airfields.


The AV-70-16AH is a high intensity version of the AV-70 and is ideal for use in high sunlight areas.

Optional Radio Control

The AV-70-RF is a radio-controlled version of the AV-70, which can be used in conjunction with a PALC or simple handheld controller. Users can wirelessly control ON/OFF functions, adjust light intensities or switch between visual and IR (tactical) operational modes if fitted.
