Telecommunications Reseller

The Phone Cloud are a UK Telecommunications company based in Buckinghamshire. Air2Air are one of their customers.

Air2Air wanted to make helipads part of the helicopter. They developed a solar-powered lighting system controlled by an application, which allowed the pilot to turn the lights on before take-off. The helipad can be built on concrete or grass and is designed to control debris from hitting the helicopter. They needed a way for the application to communicate with the helipad in situations where hard-wiring the system to the internet is impractical.


Jola proposed data SIMs to exactly meet the requirements. They were cost-effective and easy to manage. Through Mobile Manager they were able to pause, swap and upgrade SIMs remotely whereas other alternatives required physical intervention.

Air2Air developed a solar powered lighting system for the helipad. Recently Air2Air have installed this Helipad at Booker Airfield, in High Wycombe. This Helipad is a 12m x 12m helipad, but with 35 green lights around the circle, and 25 lights on the H to allow the pilot to see easily at dusk or night.

The lighting system is controlled by an app (Android & IOS), and allows the Pilot before take-off, to turn the lights “on”. Once the app has sent the command, the solar-powered Box, turns the lights on, and then sends a command back to the app advising the pilot the lights have been turned “on”.
