Recommended Posts

Could some one please tell me what the Runway Turnoff and Wing Lights on the overhead panel are for, and when I should switch them on/off?

Thanx for the quick respons, so let me get this straight, I only use the turnoff lights on the ground during taxi and the wing lights are off most of the time? I hate to bother you guys, but when do you use wing lights, other than checking for icing? Sorry for having so many questions.
