Light-Emitting Diode Airfield Lights

Numerous taxiways now incorporate light-emitting diode (LED) edge lights to reduce electricity consumption. Approximately 3,000 LED edge and guard lights have been installed to date. The Department of Aviation now requires LED lighting on all new or reconstructed taxiways. An LED airfield light fixture uses approximately 50% less electricity than a similar incandescent fixture. The DOA is working with a prominent lighting provider to develop edge lighting that is even more efficient than currently available.
