The Avlite LED Series 3 PAPI is a highly efficient Precision Approach Path Indicator. It uses LEDs as a light source to reduce maintenance, lower power consumption, and increase reliability, safety and visibility. The light head unit is designed for energy efficiency, and can be supplied with AC or DC voltage input, or optional solar power supplies. The Series 3 is also available with optional marine-grade finishes to withstand prolonged exposure in environments with high humidity and salinity.

Patented LED Optics

Innovative optics achieve the industry’s lowest power consumption, uniform intensity, and sharpest red/white transition for critically accurate approach slope information to the pilot.

Field Proven Design

The Avlite LED PAPI was developed by Laser Guidance Inc, a United States designer and manufacturer of high precision aviation lighting products. Now in its 3rd generation, over 100 systems have been deployed globally on all seven continents.

Permanent or Portable Operations

Available with permanent frangible or temporary mounting legs, the PAPI is designed to support various usage conditions.

Designed for Commercial or Military Applications

The Avlite LED PAPI is one of the only PAPIs on the market capable of supporting visual and infrared operational states within the same optic. Switchable by ground operators, the visual PAPI allows pilots to identify approach slope information using traditional means of WHITE/RED light or flashing infrared combinations.
