Re: Heard of laser flare lights?

Earlier this year I attended a safety talk by Coast Guard Group Sector San Francisco (in the wake of the LSC tragedy). One of the things they said was there was a standing order for all aircrews to return immediately for a retinal examination if they spot a laser. A second aircrew will be rounded up and then dispatched to resume the search. They did tell us in no uncertain terms if we didn’t want to see a helo fly away, then don’t signal with a laser flare.
