Design and Maintenance Considerations for Aircraft Exterior Lighting Plastic Lenses

Scope:

The information in this document is intended to apply to commercial jet transport category airplanes that incorporate plastic (polycarbonate or acrylic) lenses on exterior light assemblies, or are being considered for such an application as opposed to glass lens designs. Exterior lighting applications include position light assemblies, anticollision light asemblies, and landing light assemblies. 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.
