Need to be able to distinguish red and green position locating lights on aircraft, LED readouts on the instrumentation and warning lights in the cockpit. Additionally, both day and night flight require the ability to distinguish airport tower beacons and lighting from hazardous towers and other obstructions to flight. Not all regulatory agencies require perfect colorvision, and some simply restrict the times and/or places the color deficient can fly.
