Thanks for all your replies!
I am building the RV in Germany and talked to my examiner regarding the topic. He said to be able to get certified for night operations you need to have lights that are in compliance with JAR/CS 23. They don't need to be certified, but as I understand you have to show they comply. It's about angles and so on. I still have to finish reading the requirements.
Has anyone experience with the FlyLEDs in regards to get certified for night operations in the US?
FlyLEDs allow you to put the landing lights into the wing tips or into the wings' leading edge. I'd think the leading edge position would be nicer so you have more light in front of you and not only on the sides. So I'd go with standard strobes in the wing tips and landing lights in the wing's leading edge. Any thoughts on that?
