Pilots complain about bright lights at Levi's Stadium

Pilots Complain About Bright Lights At Levi's Stadium

The bright lights at Levi's Stadium, home to the San Francisco 49ers, no doubt dazzle and entertain spectators, but some pilots aren't fond of them.

At least 6 of them who fly near the sports arena have filed complaints with the FAA.

One expressed concerns that the lights could cause 'flicker vertigo,' while another described them as being 'blinding' and 'incapacitating.'

A sign situated on top of Levi's Stadium was also mentioned to be a potential safety hazard, as in bad weather it could be erroneously identified as a runway.

According to an FAA spokesperson, a number of the complaints have been traced back to evenings when the scoreboard was being calibrated.

Stadium management has promised that going forward they will not engage in such activities without giving prior notification to aviation authorities.

Further, no such adjustments will occur during scheduled airfield hours.
