Intentional laser strikes are a growing threat to business aviation. In 2015, 6,000 laser strike incidents were reported to the FAA, an increase of more than 2,000 from the previous year. NBAA recognizes the danger these incidents pose, and provides resources to assist pilots both during and after a laser strike.
