Range : Windsocks

Windsocks are engineered and manufactured to a variety of aviation standards including both ICAO Annex 14 and FAA150 5345-27. All electrical, mechanical, and structural components have been fully vetted to ensure compliance. The all-aluminum assembly provides rigid support, while remaining light enough to swivel freely in the lightest breeze.


– Millard Towers Aviation Windsocks are designed to provide critical wind information to pilots.
– Suitable for all environments, particularly those subject to high UV, wind, and salwater exposure.


– Windsocks can be supplied as Unlit or Lit
– Lit assemblies are designed to suit 100-240VAC, 2.8-6.6A, or
12VDC power supplies
– An optional obstruction light can be equipped


Frangible windsock towers are manufactured to ICAO and FAA frangibility specifications and made from high-grade Aluminum alloy. The unique lattice structure offers rigidity in high winds, but is yielding if accidentally impacted by an aircraft. The tower comes equipped with either a tilting base or an elevated hinge. Both provide easy servicing for windsock maintenance and replacement.

Explosion Proof Windsocks are designed to give helicopter pilots a highly visible indication of wind speed and direction during landing and take-off in all weather and light conditions. For use on all offshore and onshore helideck platforms, the corrosion resistant illuminated windsock is rated for Zone 1 and 2 areas with gas explosion hazard and complies with Transport Canada TP325, ICAO Annex 14, and UK CAA CAP437 specifications. Made from high-grade materials and utilizing cutting-edge components, the assembly requires minimum maintenance – only a periodic visual inspection is required.
