BIRD STRIKE PREVENTION

The Pulselite® System has been installed on more than 25,000 aircraft of all categories, including airline jets, business jets, general fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. The Pulselite® System serves two purposes – to reduce bird strikes and to increase aircraft recognition for collision avoidance with other aircraft. The Pulselite® System features patented TCAS integration to enhance the margin of safety.

Precise Flight’s Pulselite switches are installed on some of the world’s safest airlines, including Qantas and Alaska Airlines. Research has shown that the planes equipped with the pulselite technology experience up to 60% fewer bird strikes, saving airlines millions of dollars annually, while increasing passenger safety.

MAKE YOUR AIRCRAFT MORE VISIBLE

The greatest benefit of the Pulselite system is found on commercial aircraft. In the air every day, in all weather and conditions visibility is key to safety. Airlines that pulse their lights exhibit a lower occurrence of near-miss events. Air Traffic Controllers and other pilots alike know that pulsing lights make an aircraft much more visible throughout all phases of taxiing and flight.

COST SAVINGS ON EXISTING AIRCRAFT LIGHTING

Because the Pulselite switch modulates your existing lights, it allows the filament and bulb to run at a lower temperature. The bulb retains full rated candle power; less heat, less stress, more visibility. It’s a win-win situation. When using landing lights for visibility, you’ll experience the highest visual benefit and save on bulb replacements and maintenance.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT THE PULSELITE® SYSTEM

I preach to everyone who will listen about the effectiveness of the Pulselite System. Since installing the Pulselite System on our fleet, the number of bird strikes we were experiencing has been virtually eliminated. It’s been over seven years and 250,000 flight hours since our last bird strike.

Prior to installing the Pulselite System, we were experiencing a near fatal bird strike every two years.

In addition to its effectiveness in reducing bird strikes, the Pulselite System significantly increases the conspicuity of our helicopters, and that makes flying much safer for everyone. It’s a very easy installation, and I believe the Pulselite System is a must-have for safety.”

JOHN MANDERNACH, VP OF MAINTENANCE, MAVERICK HELICOPTERS

Airbus Helicopters is committed to being the industry leader in safety and innovation. Bird strikes are a growing problem for helicopter operators. We are optimistic that the Pulselite System will help reduce the number of occurrences and we are proud to offer it as an option to our customers.”

LINDSAY CUNNINGHAM, DIRECTOR OF AVIATION SAFETY, AIRBUS HELICOPTERS

We purchased the Pulselite System for the extra safety margin it afforded us by making us more visible, especially during daylight, to other aircraft operating in proximity to us.

In many police aircraft operations, multiple media aircraft converge on our scenes. Using the Pulselite System gives us additional peace of mind that we will be seen and avoided.”

DAN SCHWARTZBACH, SENIOR OFFICER/PILOT, HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Pulselite System is installed on our entire fleet because it significantly enhances the safety of our pilots, employees, and customers. 

The increased visibility created by the Pulselite System decreases the threat of midair and ground collisions and significantly reduces the frequency of bird strikes. The Pulselite System is ultra-reliable, easy to install and it performs well in any condition.

I believe it should be a standard safety measure on all rotorcraft.”

JULIO ALVAREZ, FLEET MANAGER , PAPILLION HELICOPTERS

Pulsing exterior lights have been proven to reduce bird strikes, and it absolutely helps in collision avoidance by maximizing aircraft visibility. 

I support all technologies that increase flight safety, and pulsing exterior lights is an important one.”

STEVE JANGELIS, PILOT, DELTA AIRLINES SAFETY COMMITTEE, AIR LINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION, INT'L

Before using the Pulselite System, I used to characterize bird strikes as unpreventable. I no longer look at bird strikes that way. Using the Pulselite System, Metro Aviation, based on data and studies, expects 6 times fewer bird strikes in migratory paths, and 3 times fewer bird strikes overall. The Pulselite System is an excellent product and we are systematically retrofitting the fleet. I would recommend each operator evaluate their data and operational profile to validate what we have determined to be a valuable modification.”

ED STOCKHAUSEN, DIRECTOR OF SAFETY, METRO AVIATION

“For more than twenty years, the Tour Operators Program of Safety – or TOPS – has been dedicated to enhancing helicopter tour safety by requiring our members to meet requirements above those set by the FAA. The result has been a cumulative safety record much higher than that of general aviation. One such TOPS requirement is alternating avoidance lighting to increase aircraft visibility and decrease the chance of midair and ground collisions. Many of our members choose to use the Pulselite System to meet this requirement.

JEN BOYER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, TOUR OPERATORS PROGRAM OF SAFETY (TOPS)

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET NOTICED?

For over 20 years, the answer has been the Pulselite® System.

The Pulselite® system is simple and straight forward – it pulses your aircraft’s existing lights. Pulsing lights get attention; we see them every day. The Pulselite® system applies that same recognition to your aircraft.

THE STANDARD
IN RECOGNITION

Pulselite alternately flashes existing landing, taxi and recognition lights 45 times per minute in a pattern that dramatically increases the visibility of your aircraft.

BENEFITS OF PULSELITES®

THE SAFETY OF YOUR PASSENGERS

Amid increased air traffic and ground lighting, the safety of your passengers often times depends on how well other pilots see your aircraft.

INDUSTRY ACCEPTANCE

84% of all business aviation aircraft are equipped with a Pulselite® system.

COLLISION AVOIDANCE

It’s really quite simple: if you see it you can avoid it. What are you doing to make yourself more visible? Enhance the capability of your Onboard Collision Avoidance System and increase lamp life up to 5 times.

REDUCE THE LIKELIHOOD OF BIRD STRIKES

Give birds more time to better discern aircraft position and speed, so as to reduce collisions.

CERTIFIED FOR MOST AIRCRAFT

FAA approved with Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for virtually all corporate, general aviation, rotorcraft and commercial aircraft, the Pulselite® is installed on more than 25,000 aircraft worldwide. Backed by a complete engineering department, Precise Flight has sample wiring diagrams available or can create one for your specific application.
