Simulator Evaluation of Land and Hold-Short Operation (LAHSO) Lighting Configurations

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) evaluated several proposed Land and Hold-Short Operation (LASHO) lighting configurations using a flight simulator. The configurations are assigned to indicated to the pilot of a land aircraft the location of hold-short point. Subject pilots flew approaches and takeoffs to each LASHO configuration under simulated visual flight rules (VFR) weather conditions and completed evaluation questionnaires. In addition to subjective questionnaire responses, pilot and aircraft performance data, such as speed at touchdown, length of rollout, etc., were recorded.
