Re: Heard of laser flare lights?
If someone has activated an Epirb in the neighborhood 200 miles offshore and a laser is flashing in their windshield, most pilots are going to put 2 and 2 together and figure that the beam's coming from someone who needs help. Especially after they don't get shot at. If the range of the light is more than a mile - the site claims a range of at least one mile in daylight and up to 20 miles at night - a pilot can at least report the sighting to help with the SAR. What is the status of CG approval?
