However, much of the material provided herein is general in nature and is directly applicable to many aircraft categories including, but not limited to, helicopters, general aviation aircraft, and military aircraft.

Rationale:

This document is to provide a design guide for plastic exterior lenses along with maintenance considerations. The most recent update is to provide additional references and more technical considerations in the design and maintenance of this type of exterior lighting system.
