FAA Obstruction Lighting Requirements

In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) governs obstruction and aircraft warning light regulations to ensure all structures are visible day and night. According to FAA tower lighting requirements, any temporary or permanent structure that exceeds 200 feet should be marked with lights and/or paint. Adhering to these federal aviation regulations is essential for aircraft safety—click here to read the full FAA advisory circular on obstruction marking and lighting.
