Pi-Lit™ Helicopter Landing Zone Kit

Pi-Lit™ Helicopter Landing (LZ Kit)

The Pi-Lit® LZ (Landing Zone) Kit employs state-ofthe-art radio technology to create a safer landing zone area for rotary-wing aircraft. Five LED flares flash in unison to create a visible “constellation” to help the pilot distinguish the landing lights from the light-noise of surrounding ground-based emergency vehicles. Quick to deploy; easy to store; the pi-Lit® LZ Kit is another smart product from Pi Variables, Inc.

Perfect for police, fire, first responders, med-evac and military, the pi-Lit LZ Kit packs small and brightly demarcates the ground crew-cleared area for helicopter landing. The pi-Lit LZ Kit uses either infra-red or visible LEDs (or both) to allow for NVG approach. Designed to mark the corners of a 30 meter square (100 feet) with the 5th flare placed outside of the square to denote wind direction.
