Airport lights during the daylight hours

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a possibility to have airports taxiways lights on during daylight hours in case visibility is very low ? It might be helpful during full IMC conditions (foggy with reduced visibility on the ground) to have all ligthings switched on (as in real life) but I don't know there is some FSX limitation that prevents it.

Thanks

Yes FSX is hard coded that if the visibility is low enough during the day that the lights will be turned on for you.

Yes, as Jim said- if the visibility / ceiling is less than VMC (3 statute miles visibility and/or 1,000 feet ceiling), you should get the lights to turn on in the daytime.

 

This is similar to real-life, other than at any time (regardless of weather or time of day), the pilot can request lights be turned on (at a towered airport), or turn them on yourself where "pilot controlled lighting- PCL" is available- usually at a non-towered airport.

 

Thanks, Bruce.
