The LED PAPI is the most advanced on the market and has the widest range of configurations: •Visible and IR output •Portable and permanent •ICAO / FAA / STANAG Compliant •Several power options available.

Advanced Optics

The PAPI and the Abbreviated PAPI (APAPI) use patented, LED-based optics to achieve the lowest power consumption, highest intensity and sharpest white/red transition. It exceeds ICAO / FAA / STANAG requirements to provide a clear approach path to the aviator.

Easy Installation

The PAPI works equally well in permanent or temporary locations. Permanent mounting is easy with standard frangible mounting. Temporary deployment is fast with retractable legs and a lightweight, compact form factor.

Power Supply Versatility

The low power consumption of the PAPI makes it mate well with several available power supplies:

• Solar kit

• Generator kit

• Battery kit

• AC only


Optional wireless control provides on-demand operation from up to 4 km (2.5 m) away.

There is also 3 and 5-step, wired control and local control available


Deployed around the globe, from military to civilian airfields and from the Middle East to the Arctic Circle, the PAPI has proven it is robust. LED keypad and LED indicators designed for use with gloves. Removable, replaceable antenna.
