|What's a snazzy looking aircraft without impressive, flashy lights? Something that can't be clearly seen at night, that's what! Although we agree that our aircraft lighting is quite classy, the real reason you have these installed on your plane is to keep everyone safe in the skies. From small aircraft navigation lights to these recognition lights (such as the Whelen 01-0770303-00 25-watt recognition light), the FAA has particular requirements when it comes to proper lighting of aircraft.|
So what are recognition lights? As the name suggests, they're lights which allow other pilots to recognize your aircraft. For safety reasons, is often recommended that you have them on below 10,000 feet. If you have any questions regarding these lights and when they should be used, give our expert sky geeks a call.
