Take off into the night sky!

Are you ready to take your Microsoft Flight Simulator experience to new heights? There’s nothing quite like soaring through the night sky, watching the world below twinkle and sparkle with lights. But before you take off, let’s make sure you’re fully equipped to navigate the skies in the dark.

One of the most important aspects of nighttime flying is proper airport lighting. Without it, you’ll have a tough time finding your way around, and landing safely could prove challenging. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with our comprehensive airport and runway lighting guide. So buckle up, and let’s get started!

Let there be light: airport and runway guide

When it comes to airport lighting, there are a few key elements to keep in mind. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know:

  • Runway edge lights: These are the lights that line the edges of the runway, helping you stay on course during takeoff and landing.
  • Runway centerline lights: These lights run down the center of the runway, giving you a clear path to follow.
  • Threshold lights: These mark the beginning of the runway and are typically white.
  • End lights: These mark the end of the runway and are typically red.
  • Taxiway lights: These help guide you from the runway to the terminal.

By understanding these different types of lighting, you’ll be able to navigate the airport with ease, even in the dark.
