The fact that the problem was identified in 2008 by the Canadians, and subject to an FAA publication of warning in 2009, with the LEDs still being installed and not upgraded to ameliorate the problem....well, that's a problem.



But who's problem? From the language in the documents, it appears to be the pilot's.

And, as before, what came first, the NVGs (which, according to the FAA approval of them, set the operational environment), or the LEDs (that weren't designed to provide visibility through equipment used widely by helicopter pilots)?



To use Ward's terminology, the nav lights came first and the NVG's made use of an undocumented feature. However, in this case, the Golden Rule (he who has the gold makes the rules) is likely to play out differently.
