Instrument lights.
(a) The instrument lights must—
(1) Provide sufficient illumination to make each instrument, switch and other device necessary for safe operation easily readable unless sufficient illumination is available from another source; and
(2) Be installed so that—
(i) Their direct rays are shielded from the pilot's eyes; and
(ii) No objectionable reflections are visible to the pilot.
(b) Unless undimmed instrument lights are satisfactory under each expected flight condition, there must be a means to control the intensity of illumination.
