PLUSAFE unique Azimuth Guidance System for Approach (SAGA) guides the pilot with perfect precision clear of obstacles when a certain direction and azimuth angle is required by traffic control. On the approach axis, the pilot will receive vi...
Product Description
Many heliports are located in crowded or remote areas with few visual cues, many obstacles in the way and where traffic control requires a certain direction to be used.
Under these conditions ICAO Annex 14 Vol.II recommends the helipad to be complemented with the aid of Visual Alignment Systems.
