Precise Flight’s Pulselite Bird Strike Prevention System has received foreign validation from the European Aviation Safety Administration and the Civil Aviation Administration of China for the Bell 407 aircraft, the company announced on 6 August.

FAA-certified Pulselite is a lightweight electrical system controller that alternately pulses the landing and auxiliary lights of a helicopter, in order to increase its visibility and reflect the speed and directional movement of the aircraft.

The system enhances safety by increasing aircraft recognition and reducing bird strikes. The Pulselite system is certified for all major helicopter models through the FAA.

Doug La Placa, chief executive officer of Precise Flight, said: ‘The Pulselite system is installed on more than 25,000 aircraft around the world and continues to be the gold standard for aircraft recognition and bird strike reduction.

‘The Bell 407 is one of the most successful and prestigious programmes in the global rotorcraft industry and Precise Flight is honoured to offer the Pulselite System to Bell's customers in the fastest growing rotorcraft markets.’
