This complete airport windsock assembly incorporates four LED lights, a 140watt multicrystalline solar module, and a 110Ah SLA battery.
Our solar airfield windsock comes at a length of 4m (12ft) and is available in orange, white or yellow for maximum visibility. Triple stitched seams make the windsock incredibly durable and the material is UV treated to reduce the damaging effects of the sun.
Avlite’s unique light mounting wing design directs the light towards the windsock and prevents stray light to ensure the pilot isn’t distracted upon landing.
Each AV09 light incorporates a 3watt ultra-high intensity LED as a light source offering up to 100,000 hours of service - no need to change any globes! With low power consumption and external sun-switch for automatic night activation, the AV-WC-L is a fantastic alternative to traditional hard-wired products.
The AV-WC-L can be installed immediately and requires no costly underground wiring.
Illuminated Windsock Optional Features
Windsock with Radio Control
The AV-WC-L is also available with Radio Control, whereby lights can be operated by a wireless handheld controller, enabling personnel to remotely activate the windsock light.
Windsock with Pilot Activated Lighting Control
The AV-WC-L can be integrated to a third party Pilot Activated Lighting Controller (AV-PALC), to allow approaching aircraft to activate the windsock light on unmanned aerodromes.
