Page 1 of 4 AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION CIRCULAR 11/15 PILOT PROCEDURES WHEN EXPOSED TO LASER AND OTHER DIRECTED BRIGHT LIGHT SOURCES (Supersedes AIC 14/09) Purpose This aeronautical information circular (AIC) contains information and guidelines for flight crews when encountering laser illuminations or other directed bright light sources while in flight. It also contains a link to the “Directed Bright Light Illumination Incident Report/Questionnaire” for pilots. Background Directed bright light sources projected near airports or into any navigable airspace can cause potential flight control disruptions and/or eye injury to pilots, crew members, and passengers. The number of laser illuminations affecting aircraft has significantly increased during the past few years. In particular, the number of laser incidents reported involving law enforcement helicopters has substantially increased. Canada and the USA have both recorded numerous instances of laser exposures that have been disruptive to flight operations. Flight crews may be startled; they may be affected by glare, flash blindness and/or afterimage due to laser occurrences. Definitions Afterimage:The perception of light, dark, or coloured spots after exposure to bright light that may be distracting and disruptive; the spots may persist for several minutes. Directed bright light source:A device capable of emitting a beam of high-intensity light, such as a laser, searchlight, spotlight, or image projector. Flash blindness:A temporary vision impairment that interferes with the ability to detect or resolve a visual target following exposure to a bright light.
