Hello everyone and good evening!!
I would like to make a small summary on the basic lighting that every aircraft has and when it is used as I have seen too many not using it right on the servers.
There are four lights that every aircraft has and they are all used at some parts of a flight.
This light is the easiest one, because it must always be on. It can be seen from very far and the purpose of it is to let everyone know the direction that the aircraft is heading.
The second light is the “beacon lights”. These lights are two red flashing lights on top and under the aircraft. These lights are turned on when the engines are on. The main purpose of these lights is to let the ground crew know that the engines are on and they should be careful around them.
These lights are strong lights that are used to see the runway with some difficult visibility. These lights must turn on when below 10,000 feet.
Last and most important one is the Strobe Lights!
These are flashing white lights at the tip of the wings and rear of the aircraft.
**the strobe lights are to remain on from the moment you enter a runway for takeoff, until after you leave the runway on landing **
The purpose of these lights is to let other aircraft know that there is an aircraft on the runway or getting close to the runway.
I hope this will make infinite flight more realistic for some flyers.
If there are any questions feel free to dm me.
If there are any mistake or inaccuracy please let me know as well, thank you!
