A comprehensive resource for safe and responsible laser use

News: Aviation incidents

This webpage has a chronological list of selected aviation-related laser pointer incidents from 1987 to mid-2021. We stopped updating these news items in mid-2021 but we do update U.S. FAA statistics each year.

We also have news pages for
non-aviation incidents, and for all other laser pointer news (includes overall statistics about incidents, new laws and regulations, and safety warnings and publications). In addition, the What’s new at the website page lists major changes, updates, and additions to LaserPointerSafety.com.
