Maintain a locally developed airfield lighting chart or electronic equivalent identifying the number of lights associated with each lighting system (e.g., Approach, Runway, Taxiway, Obstruction, etc.) and the actions required to address outages. Consult with CE and use Table 2.1. Airfield Lighting Chart to determine if any identified outages within a particular lighting system render it unusable. Note: Information of the Airfield Lighting Chart was extracted from the Military Handbook 1023/4, Maintenance of Visual Air Navigation Facilities, FAAO 6850.5 Maintenance of Lighted Navigational Aids and FAA Advisory Circle 150/5340-26, Maintenance of Airport Visual Aid Facilities Appendix A.

Additionally, an unserviceable light should not be adjacent to another unserviceable light except in a barrette or a crossbar where two adjacent unserviceable lights may be permitted. With respect to barrettes, crossbars and runway edge lights, lights are considered to be adjacent if located consecutively and: Laterally - in the same barrette or crossbar; or Longitudinally - in the same row of the edge lights or barrettes. Ensure NOTAMs are sent for airfield lighting outages as required. Process AF IMT 332 for airfield discrepancies. Track, monitor, and update status until work is complete.
