Windsock Lighting Systems Delivered to African Civil Aviation Department

Windsock Lighting - Aviation Renewables has been awarded a contract to supply and deliver solar LED windcones and a retro-reflective taxiway marker system for an African Civil Aviation Department. These technologies will be used in conjunction to the previously supplied LED runway lighting, LED threshold lighting, LED taxiway lighting, LED REILs (Runway End Identifier Lights), LED PAPIs and remote control operating systems at this airport. The airport is a flight school in eastern Africa, and this ICAO compliant LED airfield lighting system will enable the flight school to conduct night training, saving the students a large amount of money when compared to the previous practice of flying to the closest international airport several hundred miles away for this training. The lights will be housed in portable trailers, which will charge, transport and store the portable LED runway lighting system. Aviation Renewables conducted on-site technical training for our local representative, as well as staff from the Civil Aviation Authority. As a result of this training, the local representative was able to install this second phase of equipment unassisted and will continue to support the equipment through the expected lifetime of the products.

How to Read a Wind Cone

How to Read a Wind Cone

The wind cone, also called the 'windsock' is a colorful tool at each airport that offers relevant information to pilots, allowing them to quickly and easily determine the approximate wind speed and direction before taking off or landing.

Wind Cone Technology

Pilots have much more precise and technologically advanced ways of discovering wind speed and direction than looking at the windsock. But the windsock is still invaluable for the speed and accuracy of the information it can convey.
