Well generally I am very anti-glare or am against open filaments being seen.* However, in this instance the pilot will need to be able to see these lights from a minimum 3/4 to 1 mile out for navigational purposes.* So unlike a driveway or walkway where the light source would be concealed this would not be the case here.* Give me a few days to ruminate on this, I bet this lights could be made.* I would start with maybe a simple, low pagoda style line voltage fixture, take the top and pagoda shield off and find some clear glass jars to retrofit over the top somehow.* This may take some research and trial and error but could probably be done much less than your typical Aviation lights.* Just thinking out loud here.* There would be no UL listing for the modifications obviously.
