KSA Design Engineer, Michael Shangreaux, EIT, helped design, install and acquire funding for the first LED PAPI system in Texas at the Taylor Municipal Airport. “PAPI” stands for Precision Approach Path Indicator. PAPI systems are used by pilots as a visual guidance system on the ground that assists in landing their planes safely. As pilots approach the Taylor Municipal Airport, the LED PAPI system will use a combination of red and white lights to indicate if they are on the correct trajectory, or if they are too high or too low.
