In clouds flashing nav & strobe..when?

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I was wondering, I just flew through some thick clouds, and visibility was really low. The landing light effect worked purrfect, hwoever, the flashing lights (nav and strobe) effect showed nothing. Any reason why?

Volumetric strobe lights can be observed on each wing, and at the back of the aircraft at dusk, night, and dawn when the visibility is lower than 1/2 statute miles (SM).
 
Volumetric navigation lights can be observed at the end of each wing at dusk, night, and dawn when the visibility is lower than 1/2 statute miles (SM).
 
Volumetric beacon lights can be observed as flashing red lights on the top and bottom of the fuselage at dusk, night, and dawn when the visibility is lower than 1/2 statute miles (SM).
 
Let me know if that answers your question!
 
Regards,
Keven

Even on visibility lower than 1/2 mile you can see lights from cockpit.....I have to say that I am disappointment with what I (don't) see in heavy clouds at night. I am able to see that on FSLlights. Unless I have different and wrong setup (BTW outside lights are OK), it is not as advertised.
