Dear fellow Simmers,
infinite flight becomes more real every day! - we should add our share by applying real world operating procedures!!
Please use the white strobe lights correctly, it makes a big difference.
The strobes are used only:
if an aircraft is crossing a runway (e.g. to taxi to the take off rwy)
if an aircraft enters a runway for take off after receiving the line up or take off clearance
if in flight until vacating the runway after landing
In case you have to cross another runway on your way to the gate, turn the strobes on again for the time you cross the runway.
By the way, if you get confused with the function of the beacon light (the red one;-): The beacon indicates an aircraft with engines running or in motion. So it is turned on before pushback from “off blocks” and turned of after arrival “on blocks”
…and another thing: In the real world you turn on the landing lights: between lining up until you reach 10000ft from descending thru 10000ft until you vacate the runway after landing.
As we do not have taxi light we can use the landing light also during taxi. But please: Turn them off while you stop and wait for traffic to pass and turn them off when entering the gate area.
Happy landings folks!
P.S.: You can trust me on the procedures
