Supply CHAPI System(Heliport Approach Path Indicators) for Heliport in Brazil

Applications: Surface-level heliports

Location: Brazil

Date: 2023-8-1

Product: CM-HT12-P Heliport CHAPI Light


A heliport designed and equipped to allow helicopter landing and take-off operations during the nighttime or in low visibility conditions. These heliports have specific features and devices to ensure the safety and efficiency of nighttime operations.

Nighttime heliports are equipped with adequate lighting systems to enable helicopters to land and take off safely. This may include approach lights, landing area illumination lights, signaling lights, and orientation lights.

To ensure safe landing, allowing the pilot to determine correctly the approaching direction and descent angle, each flight approach path is required to have a CHAPI or HAPI System.


The heliport approach path indicator (CHAPI) provides the pilot with a safe and accurate glide slope on final approach to the helipad. A row of CHAPI light housing assemblies placed perpendicular to the approach path are seen by the pilot in combinations of red, green, and white to indicate a path that is too high, too low or correctly on slope.

The CHAPI system has a filter inserted between the white and red filters of each lens to provide a 2° wide green sector that, when visible from both units, signals the proper glide slope angle of 6°. Angle deviations that are too high show one or two white lights, and those that are too low show one or two red lights.
