Regulation for light control

Regulation for placing aviation obstacle signals and lights

1.

Objects that are around the airport, airfield and navigation aids and will affect flight safety and shall have obstacle lights and signals placed according to Article 32 of Civil Aviation Act, and the "Regulations for placing aviation obstacle signals and lights".

2.

Purpose for placing the signal: To allow the pilots to identify the existence of the obstacles in the day time, the obstacle surface shall be coated or placed with a marker to show its location.

3.

Purpose of placing the light: the lights placed on the obstacles shall be able to warn the aviation personnel in the day and night time, and allow them to know the exact location of the obstacles, the light usage time, method, application principle, and set up standard, relevant regulations please see "Regulation for placing aviation obstacle signals and lights" for details.

Buildings

1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT;  or

2. TYPE B OR C MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (both place middle layer lights).

1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT(Place middle layer lights);  or

2. TYPE B OR C MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (both place middle layer lights).

1. TYPE A HIGH-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights);  or

2. Dual Lighting Systems

Chimneys, towers, tanks, observation platform, broadcasting, (communications) tower, bridge tower, elevated game equipment, wind turbines or other high objects

1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (If it also provides day time usage, paints may not be used for marking) and mark with paints;  or

2. TYPE B MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights) and mark with paints.

1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT(Place middle layer lights;  If it also provides day time usage, paints may not be used for marking);  or

2. TYPE B MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights) and mark with paints.

1. TYPE A HIGH-INTENSITY LIGHT(Place middle layer lights);  or

2. Dual Lighting Systems

Note: independent objects (such as buildings, bridge towers, chimneys, tanks, observation platforms, broadcasting (communications) towers, ports and harbors (or plant) operation suspended towers, elevated game equipment, and wind turbines), moored objects, objects that are under construction, suspended tools for construction, or large area object groups, and objects with overall height higher than <60m than the ground or water surface, and has been evaluated that will affect flight safety shall place low-brightness obstacle lights; the independent objects not belonging to buildings shall also be marked with paint.

Towers that support overhead cables (such as high-voltage transmission cables, aerial tramway cables, cable car wires).

Note: 1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT or mark with paints; or

2. TYPE B MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights) and mark with paints.

1. TYPE A MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights) and mark with paints; or

2. TYPE B MEDIUM-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights) and mark with paints.

1. TYPE A HIGH-INTENSITY LIGHT (Place middle layer lights); or

2. Dual Lighting Systems

Note:
1. Towers that support overhead cables above rivers, valleys, or highways and are located in the small aircraft visual corridor, and which have heights of <60m above ground or water surface, shall place a type B low-intensity light that can provide 360 degree vision at night on the top of the tower.

2. Suspended cables located in the small aircraft visual corridor and above rivers, valleys, or highways shall place spherical markers, if due to technical incability; the suspending tower shall use type B high-intensity light in the day time.

3. Towers placed with three layers of type B high-intensity lights for day time usage (towers may not have to be marked with paints, cables may not have to be marked with spherical markers), if the relevant lighting tools also provide night time usage then there is no need to place other types of obstacle lights.

Moored Objects (such as balloons and kites)

Both 4m and 6m away from the object bottom, and the top and middle part of the moored objects shall all place at least one (or more) obstacle light which can provide a 360 degree view with the same intensity, and all the cables shall have flag markers placed.

Small fixed objects on the runway strip or taxiway strip (such as suspensions of elevated facilities, machine rooms, and fences)

TYPE A OR B LOW BRIGHTNESS LIGHT (both mark with paints).

The airport's limited mobility objects (such as aerobridge)

TYPE A OR B LOW BRIGHTNESS LIGHT.

Airport operation vehicles or other moving objects

TYPE C LOW BRIGHTNESS LIGHT and mark with paints.

Follow me vehicle

TYPE D LOW BRIGHTNESS LIGHT and mark with paints.
