Default Landing and Taxi lights burn out the right side of canopy glass

Landing and Taxi lights burn out the right side of canopy glass, on nighttime flights. Looks terrible, and obscures right front of canopy.

OK. Thank you. But it appears that there is no solution except not using land/taxi lights.

None that I'm aware of.

Let's hope it'll get fixed soon.

I use my taxi and landing light, still don't have the issue of the light illuminating the canopy glass. All that illuminates the canopy glass for me is the formation lights being turned up to more than 50% intensity...... Night, day, same effect.



Cheers,

Don

What about the formation lights? Do they still light up the canopy and steam gauges? The "frosting issue?"


Cheers,

Don
