Heliport obstruction light

Heliport obstruction light by Holland Aviation

The marking and/or lighting of obstacles is intended to reduce hazards to aircraft by indicating the presence of the obstacles.

Low-intensity obstacle lights, Type A or B, should be used where the object is a less

extensive one and its height above the surrounding ground is less than 45 m.

Heliport obstruction light

A Heliport obstruction light light used for aviation is meant to enhance the visibility of buildings or other fixed obstacles which may cause a distraction for an aircraft. Such obstruction lights are often placed on towers, fences located near heliports or airports.  

There are two common obstruction light types. * Red fixed continue emitting lights or flashing emitting emitting lights * White flashing lights at 40 Fpm 


Holland Aviation uses high-power LED's. This is what we do to improve the life cycle of the lights. This also has a beneficial effect on energy consumption. Another advantage of the high-power LED is the longer lifespan of the LED lights.  

A white medium-intensity flashing obstruction light can be used on buildings and structures that are between 61 and 152.4 meters or (200-500 feet). When buildings are higher than 213.4 meters or (700 feet) a white high-intensity flashing obstruction light should be used. By night and by day these lights give the best visibility.  

All these kinds of lights are placed on tall buildings and structures. These buildings can be towers, masts, water tanks, chimneys, Antenna's, tall buildings, cranes, electricity masts, wind turbines, and structures that are shorter but close to airports or heliports.
