The regulations and state-of-the-art for tower lighting are regularly changing as evidenced by the FAA's recent circular.  Our April meeting, featuring Mike Thompson and Bear Poth from LumenServe℠, Inc., will review key aspects of the regulations that you need to know.  LEDs have been around for many years, however in the tower lighting world their deployment is creating big changes.  Additionally, the traditional practice of procurement, maintenance, and monitoring has a new model: Tower Lighting as a Service (TLaaS). Mike and Bear will explore changes in technology and the advantages and implications of TLaaS.
