Helicopter Visual Approach System – or ‘HELIVAS’ as it is known commercially – combines a large number of visual cueing and flight deck lighting systems to provide Naval Helicopter Pilots with the latest in Visual Landing Aids.

The ability to safely operate and recover aircraft at sea, in all weather conditions, during both day and night time operations is essential in today’s modern Navy. A fundamental element of this requirement is its guidance along the correct approach path to the vessel and the transfer of the aircraft safely on to the ship’s flight deck.

AGI’s HELIVAS Visual Approach System illustration will help you to understand the landing lights.
