Streamline with â AS 264, Instrument and Cockpit Lighting for Commercial Transport Aircraft, ARP 1161, Crew Station Lighting â Commercial Aircraft, ARP 1048, Instrument and Cockpit Illumination for General Aviation Aircraft, and other documents on color, format, layout, lighting. [outline, survey all related documents] 4. Update references 5. Use latest metrics
