AIRFIELD APPROACH LIGHTING
An approach lighting system, or ALS, is a lighting system installed on the approach end of an airport runway and consisting of a series of lightbars, strobe lights, or a combination of the two that extends outward from the runway end. ALS usually serves a runway that has an instrument approach procedure (IAP) associated with it and allows the pilot to visually identify the runway environment and align the aircraft with the runway upon arriving at a prescribed point on an approach.
Modern approach lighting systems are highly complex in their design and significantly enhance the safety of aircraft operations, particularly in conditions of reduced visibility.
Runway threshold lights are provided in a line along the landing threshold at the touchdown end of a runway and define the beginning of the declared Landing Distances. They are green and can only be seen from the approach.They show red light in the direction of aircraft landing or taking off, and denote the extremity of the usable runway for landing, manoeuvring or take off purposes.
Runway end identifier lights (REIL) are installed at many airports to provide rapid and positive identification of the approach end of a particular runway. The system consists of a pair of synchronized flashing lights located laterally on each side of the runway threshold. REILs may be either omnidirectional or unidirectional facing the approach area .They are effective for:
- Identification of a runway surrounded by a preponderance of other lighting
- Identification of a runway which lacks contrast with surrounding terrain
- Identification of a runway during reduced visibility
