The control tower ususally has a control panel and another is typically located at the electrical vault for maintenance.
|Quoting Treeny (Thread starter):|
Also can a pilot request landing lights to be switched on if they are not already?
|Quoting RL757PVD (Reply 4):|
Smaller airports normally have Pilot Controlled Lighting (PCL) where the pilot keys the microphone with several clicks to select the desired intensity
|Quoting Bahadir (Reply 2):|
in towered airports they have light switches in tower cab for these. Some uncontrolled airports have full time lights that they stay in the same intensity all night long. In other uncontrolled airports, you turn the lights on and adjust the intensity by clicking on some frequency, which most of the time is the unicom freq.
