Summary of regulations on Windsocks.
Approach lighting system
- An approach lighting system shall be provided at a heliport where it is desirable and practicable to indicate a preferred approach direction.
- The approach lighting system shall be a configuration of six yellow, omni-directional lights, centered on the boundary of the preferred approach/departure path.
- These lights shall be spaced at 4 meter intervals commencing from the FATO perimeter and extending outward in the direction of the preferred approach path
A visual approach slope indicator shall be provided to serve the approach to a heliport, whether or not the heliport is served by other visual approach aids or by non-visual aids, where one or more of the following conditions exist especially at night:
- obstacle clearance, noise abatement or traffic control procedures require a particular slope to be flown;
- the environment of the heliport provides few visual surface cues; and
- the characteristics of the helicopter require a stabilized approach.
