Re: Heard of laser flare lights?

If you follow the link provided in post #17 by knuterikt it answers most of the questions people are posing here.

The signal lasers are different than the pointer lasers. They have a broader beam and are not harmful to pilots because the intensity of the beam is 1/1000th of the pointer variety, but still visible for 20 to 30 miles at night.
