Precision Approach Path Indicator

PAPI System

Free!

Provides pilots with a safe and accurate glide slope on final approach to the runway. The precision approach path indicator (PAPI) uses a row of light housing assemblies (LHAs) placed perpendicular to the runway approach path. Pilots can easily determine if their approach is too high, too low, or correctly on slope through combinations of red and white lights. The Carmanah PAPI/APAPI is available in three basic models with multiple configuration options to exceed ICAO, FAA, and STANAG requirements.

Applications
Permanent runways
Temporary runways
Emergency runways
Military and NVG operations

Easy Installation
The precision approach path indicator (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.

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. They exceed ICAO, FAA, and STANAG requirements to provide a clear approach path to the aviator.

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

Controllable
The optional wireless control provides on-demand operation from over 4 km (2.5 mi) away. There is also 3- and 5-step, wired control, and local control available.

Trusted
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.

Compliant
FAA PAPI and APAPI
ICAO PAPI and APAPI
UFC and NATO STANAG
