My only question on concerning the laser is the drawing shows it being aimed at the aircraft which is dangerous for the pilot and considered illegal. Is there a safe method for such signaling?

According to the package info, this light is not a threat physically to the eye at a distance of at least 10' and that's aimed directly into the eye. The Pilot more than likely will only see a point of light along that line, no more than from a bright red blub. This would most likely be a flickering/blinking light. Once the plane acknowledged (by maneuvers) that he saw the signal,I would presume it would stop. I am not familiar with any legal restrictions regarding a unit used as such. Good question, thanks.

Thanks for the reply. If using it is OK it's a great safety devise. When I get a chance I'll look into the subject a bit more and get back. Thanks again.
