ANN's Daily Aero-Term (07.11.20): Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI)

Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) An airport lighting facility, similar to VASI, providing vertical approach slope guidance to aircraft during approach to landing. PAPIs consist of a single row of either two or four lights, normally installed on the left side of the runway, and have an effective visual range of about 5 miles during the day and up to 20 miles at night. PAPIs radiate a directional pattern of high intensity red and white focused light beams which indicate that the pilot is “on path” if the pilot sees an equal number of white lights and red lights, with white to the left of the red; “above path” if the pilot sees more white than red lights; and “below path” if the pilot sees more red than white lights.

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (07.11.20)

"The Triple Tree Aerodrome and our Board of Directors have been closely monitoring the developing COVID-19 global pandemic. The number of cases has continually increased, and our great State of South Carolina is no exception. When you attend any of our events, you become part of our family. Families take care of each other and their well-being. In the interest of safety for our family, it brings me great sadness to announce that we will be canceling our Fall 2020 series of events, the Triple Tree Fly-In, Nall in the Fall, and the Heli Extravaganza. We look forward to the day when we can greet you at the iconic gates of The Triple Tree Aerodrome or look for you on short final to Runway 3/21. Until then, stay safe and look out for each other." Source: From the Admin folks that run the Triple Tree Aerodrome, confirming the impact of COVID-19 on a number of scheduled events and the cancellations that have resulted.
