As the pilot’s operating center during flight, the cockpit is equipped with countless devices used for control, navigation, communication, safety, and more. With many factors to consider while operating aircraft, pilots must be highly attentive and able to multitask. With this in mind, some factors of flight do not require manual monitoring, and instead only require the pilot’s attention in dire circumstances. These computer-monitor systems therefore only need manual operation when there are potential hazards that threaten to disrupt their functions. As the pilot is baseline unaware of these systems, there must be a warning system in place to alert the pilot of when one or more of these systems require manual attention. For these situations, aircraft are equipped with warning lights in the cockpit. For your better understanding of the function of these specialized notification lights, this blog will offer a brief overview of how cockpit warning lights enhance aircraft safety.
