Temporary Airport Lighting

Portable airport lightsFor airports that operate at night – perform night flight operations – it’s a must to have airport lighting which includes airfield lights, airport terminal lighting, approach lights and other lighting systems. If an airport operates at night on a regular basis, has scheduled night flights than permanent runway lighting should be installed.

However, if flighting procedures occur from time to time, seasonally, or for any other reason airport does not have permanent lighting – then a temporary airport lighting can be used.

Airport Construction Works and Closed Areas

Temporary airport lights are often used during runway rehabilitation or any other airport construction works that require closing and marking airfield areas. For marking obstructions and barricades on airfield, temporary obstruction lights are used. During repair of taxiway or taxiway lighting system, temporary taxiway lights are used.

If the main runway is closed for construction works, airport can continue flight operations by using taxiway or the second runway temporarily. In this case, temporary runway edge lights and temporary threshold lights (runway end lights) are installed on a taxiway for the construction works period.

Temporary Runway and Taxiway Lights

Temporary Taxiway LightsTemporary airport lighting  – or temporary airfield lighting – includes temporary runway lights, temporary taxiway lights, temporary threshold lights (runway end lights), temporary obstacle lights (obstruction aviation lihts), and even portable PAPI lights.

Portable Runway Lights

Portable runway lights are usually battery powered airfield lights that are stored in a hangar. The lights are used from time to time by airport personnel to temporarily illuminate runway: support night operations or flights in cloudy weather daytime.

Backup Airfield Lighting

For airports equipped with permanent hard-wired airfield lighting systems – non-instrument VFR runways, non-precision IFR runways, precision approach IFR runways – it is required to have a backup airfield lighting. Backup airfield lights are used in emergency situations when permanent AGL system does not work. There are plenty of reasons for that: MAINS power supply off, fire in substation, loss of CCRs, cable powering substation failure, circuit cable failure, etc.

In most cases, the airport will stop flight procedures until problem fixed. However, in real life it can be impossible to turn off airfield lighting immediately: airplanes approaching runway should do landing and there are no other runways nearby to pass traffic to. In this case, backup airfield lighting is used.

Emergency Airfield Lights

Described above case is an emergency situation for an airport. The airport personnel should act immediately and deploy temporary runway lighting in the shortest terms according to international aviation regulations.

Emergency airfield lights are also used to support air rescue operations, police operations, anti-terrorist missions, etc.
