Lighting manufacturer Avlite Systems has revamped its solar-powered portable airfield lighting system (Solar PALS).

The trailer uses an integrated solar charging system, removing the need for external mains power feeds.

Wade Evans, aviation systems engineer, Avlite Systems said: “The new generation PALS trailer has undergone a complete ground up re-design… The primary challenge was provide maximum functionality and useability, for example the on-board charging system, whilst minimising weight and deployment time.”

The lighting system can be controlled remotely from air traffic control, ground crews or approaching aircraft and is designed to be used on an airfield with a 1500m runway.
