Summary of regulations on TLOFs.
9.2 Touchdown and lift-off area (TLOF) lighting system
9.2.1 A TLOF lighting system shall be provided at a heliport intended for use at night.
9.2.2 The TLOF lighting system for –
(a) a surface-level heliport shall consist of one or more of the following:
(i) perimeter lights; and
(b) an elevated heliport shall consist of:
(i) perimeter lights; and
(ii) floodlighting to identify the touchdown marking where it is provided to illuminate the TLOF.
9.2.3 Location. TLOF perimeter lights shall be placed along the edge of the area designated for use as the TLOF or within a distance of 1.5m from the edge.
9.2.4 Where the TLOF is a circle the lights shall be:
(a) located on straight lines in a pattern which will provide information to pilots on drift displacement; and
(b) where paragraph (a) is not practicable, evenly spaced around the perimeter of the TLOF at the appropriate interval, except that over a sector of 45 degrees the lights shall be spaced at half spacing.
9.2.5 TLOF perimeter lights shall be uniformly spaced at intervals of not less than 3m for elevated heliports and not less than 5m for surface level heliports.
9.2.6 TLOF perimeter lights shall be fixed omnidirectional lights showing green.
9.2.7 There shall be a minimum number of four lights on each side including a light at each corner. Define a circular TLOF using an even number of lights, with a minimum of fourteen uniformly spaced lights.
9.2.8 The TLOF perimeter lights shall be installed at an elevated heliport such that the pattern cannot be seen by the pilot from below the elevation of the TLOF.
9.2.9 Additionally, TLOF floodlights shall be located so as to avoid glare to pilots in flight or to personnel working on the area. The arrangement and aiming of floodlights shall be such that shadows are kept to a minimum.
9.2.10 The average horizontal luminescence of the floodlighting shall be at least 10 lux, with a uniformity ratio (average to minimum) of not more than 8:1 measured on the surface of the TLOF.
