A portable, steady-burning, white LED light for marking tactical, expeditionary, and emergency airfield runways, airport back-up lights, and remote fixed-wing landing strip airfields. As used by oil exploration companies in undeveloped countries, and forward-deployed military.

Initially designed for expedited airfield lighting for oil exploration companies, Tektite's NITE-FLIGHT LIGHT operates from standard C alkaline batteries, and is one of the first LED aviation lights to be used for fixed wing operations at remote airfield landing strips and expedited airfields. Military issue tough, as used by US/NATO. Self-contained and watertight, they are used for temporary runway edge, taxiway, and ramp lighting. Quickly deployed for temporary operations, they can be staked into place for semi-permanent installation.
These medium-power WHITE boundary lights are effective for marking the edge of primitive landing strips. An orange reflective collar also lights up in landing lights, once the aircraft is on the ground.
These lights are not FAA approved, but make better alternatives than smudge pots, flares, vehicle headlights, or other improvised lighting for emergency light plane landing strips. The facility management must decide the number of lights needed for your situation (a maximum spacing of 200' between lights on each side of the runway is conventional). An LZ STROBE is suggested to mark the approach end of the strip.
Spring-loaded weighted bases (PVC-coated lead) keep the lights upright in high winds and prop wash. No assembly is required, so there's no fumbling around in the dark, simply lift out and twist-on.
Six optional lens colors are available: blue (taxiway), green, red (end of runway/runout), amber, yellow, and white/clear (standard). Special infrared/black (IR) versions are available for night vision equipment use, to approved government/military organizations.
The final landing decision is ALWAYS the pilot's responsibility, and use of these lights in any area must be with the consultation and approval of the pilot and/or local authorities.
Operators Liability- The system has been designed to be operated under normal visual meteorological conditions for night flying by a pilot with normal vision. The system is utilized at the operator's discretion and risk. The suppliers accept no liability whatsoever whether implied or explicit for any incidents/accidents that may incur. The operator must ensure that trained personnel operate the system and are made fully aware of aviation safety and that the runway remains clear of animals, pedestrians, and obstructions at all times during landings and takeoffs. Only competent and currently night rated pilots may use this system. Use by student pilots training for night rating is prohibited.
