Pilots and Flight Crew Lighting
Helicopter Night Flight.
Before beginning a night flight, carefully consider personal equipment that should be readily available
during the flight. At least one reliable flashlight is recommended as standard equipment on all night
flights. Remember to place a spare set of batteries in the flight kit.
The white light is used while performing the preflight visual inspection of your helicopter, and the red light is used when performing cockpit operations. Since the red light is non glaring, it will not impair night vision.
