SPX Flash Technology Provides Insight Into International Regulations for Aviation Obstruction Lighting

Aviation obstruction lights have been seen on tall structures since the 1930s with the start of nighttime flights. In the 1990s came cell phone towers, and more recently, wind turbines have become a common sight on the North American landscape. All of these obstacles are considered intrusions to navigable airspace and require a means of warning to approaching pilots of the inherent danger of the obstruction.

As member states of the International Civil Aviation Organization, the U.S., Canada and Mexico have similar obstruction lighting regulations. However, each country has its unique differences that are critical to compliance.

SPX Flash Technology recently provided detailed insight on the various international obstruction lighting regulations to North American Windpower, defining those differences and the government bodies that control them.
