What Is Airport or Aviation Obstruction Lighting?

Aviation obstruction lighting is a lighting device used to improve the visibility of fixed obstacles or structures that may conflict with the aircraft’s safety navigation. They are also called Aircraft Warning Lights (ACWL).

They are commonly installed on buildings, towers, and fences where airplanes operate at low altitudes. Obstruction lights are essential in ensuring that tall structures are visible from a distance during night, twilight, and inclement weather.
