14 CFR 23.1381 - Instrument lights.

Beta! The text on the eCFR tab represents the unofficial eCFR text at ecfr.gov.
§ 23.1381 Instrument lights.

The instrument lights must -

(a) Make each instrument and control easily readable and discernible;

(b) Be installed so that their direct rays, and rays reflected from the windshield or other surface, are shielded from the pilot's eyes; and

(c) Have enough distance or insulating material between current carrying parts and the housing so that vibration in flight will not cause shorting.

A cabin dome light is not an instrument light.
