AOPA is supporting the FAA proposal to set guidelines for the marking and lighting of proliferating meteorological evaluation towers (METs).
The FAA has asked for comments by Feb. 4 on revisions of the 64-page Advisory Circular 70/7460-1K, “Obstruction Marking and Lighting,” that would address METs. The FAA recommends adopting guidelines for METs that currently apply to other structures including “the alternate bands of aviation orange and white paint for skeletal framework of storage tanks and similar structures, and towers that have cables attached.”
See Federal Register for the full Proposed Advisory Circular.
