Helicopter air ambulance flights save lives. BDS Systems is extremely proud to be a part of that!
We are the #1 provider of Internally Lighted Windsock Systems for hospital and healthcare helipads in the USA.
BDS Windsock Systems provide medevac pilots with an indication of the wind direction and speed from a greater distance than our competitors. Our helipad windsocks are useful to identify potentially hazardous crosswinds during helicopter takeoffs and landings. Our lighted windsocks are more visible and pose less glare to medevac pilots. Therefore, our lighted windsocks increase the safety of takeoffs and landings for medevac pilots, especially at night and in low-visibility conditions.
Aviation regulations require the presence of at least one windsock at all hospital helipad landing facilities. Since hospital helipads are intended for use both day and night, the windsock must be illuminated. BDS’s internally lighted and externally lighted windsock systems provide the ultimate solution to these regulations regardless of what hour of the day or night.
Hundreds of hospitals and healthcare systems across the United States and other parts of the world entrust us with their lighted windsock safety needs.
