the control tower. Units that do not have remote on-off controls shall be operated when they serve the
runway in use and according to the tables in FAA Handbook 7110.65, except--
a. As requested by the pilot.
b. As required by facility directives to meet local conditions.
PART B--AIRFIELD LIGHTING BETWEEN SUNRISE AND SUNSET
The secondary purpose of a rotating beacon is to identify an airport with weather conditions
below basic VFR minima during daylight hours. Turn on the rotating beacon between sunrise and
sunset when the reported ceiling or visibility is below basic VFR minima.
APPROACH AND TAXIWAY LIGHTS
Turn on the approach lights when requested by the pilot and when you think it necessary (if not
contrary to the pilot's request). Turn on the approach lights also when the ceiling is less than 1,000 feet
or the prevailing visibility is 5 miles or less and approaches are being made to a landing runway served
by the lights, to a runway served by the lights but the aircraft will land on another runway, and to the
airport but landing will be made on a runway served by the lights. Operate taxiway lights anytime you
think necessary and as required by local instructions.
SEQUENCED FLASHING LIGHTS
Operate the SFL as requested by the pilot and as you think it necessary (if not contrary to the
pilot's request). When the visibility is less than 3 miles and instrument approaches are being made to the
runway served by the associated approach light systems, you also should operate the SFL.
Operate the runway lights serving the runway in use when you think it necessary, as required by
facility directives, and when requested by the pilot and no other known aircraft will be adversely
affected. Operate the runway lights also when the surface visibility is less than 2 miles--
a. Before an arriving IFR aircraft begins final approach.
