According to HSW magazine, pilots fly and navigate utilizing cockpit instrumentation, air traffic control, and radar surveillance systems. They use the Global Positioning System, so there’s no need to look out the window; after all, there’s nothing to see at 35,000 feet at night. Pilots alter the cockpit lighting to the bare minimum required; they will use red lights instead of white lights because white lights impair night vision.

Pilots utilize aircraft landing lights and runway equipment to guide them while landing as soon as they take off. The runway is illuminated by powerful landing lights mounted on the aircraft to guarantee it is clear. Pilots can lock into a landing beam emitted from the runway by using an instruments landing system. For the most part, the runway is also illuminated by white lights.To avoid a collision, the aircraft is equipped with red or white flashing lights to aid other pilots in locating the aircraft. It also features position lights that aid in determining the plane’s flight path. Pilots can steer their aircraft to maintain separation depending on the colours of light they perceive. To peek into the darkness, pilots can utilize night vision goggles.
