Every component on an aircraft holds vital importance whether it is a small landing light or a vertical stabilizer. Lights are often under shadowed by the sheer brilliance of other parts of an aircraft but do not be mistaken. Without lights, an aircraft would barely be recognizable. Recognizable in the sense that it would be difficult to judge whether an aircraft is crossing the runway, waiting for takeoff, taxiing or the aircraft is moving away or coming towards you. The main purpose of exterior lighting is to provide visibility for pilots and guide them through the sky. However, there exist different types of exterior lights that can be found on aircraft. Let’s take a look at each different type of light and its importance.

Airline amenity kits are nonetheless sought- after by Avgeeks and travel-enthusiasts alike. Like a bit of a small spa retreat in the skies, the First Class amenity kit provides travellers with all the essentials they may need in flight and upon landing. Think, an eye mask for better beauty sleep, a perfume for post-arrival hugs, and a hair brush to tame that static airplane mane. And whilst a standard brush or perfume may somewhat do, the First Class experience is never about things that will simply ‘just do’. Airlines have been quick to respond to this, battling it out with one another by featuring only the best brands for their specially curated sets.
After all, it is the amenity kit that stays with you long after you’ve stepped out of seat 1A and onto the tarmac of your destination. The amenity kit becomes a token of your journey, be it for better or for worse. From Givenchy sleep masks to Ferragamo perfume and a miniature RIMOWA suitcase, here is a list of some of the best first class amenity kits in the skies at the moment.
