The trend toward much greater use of general aviation aircraft under all weather conditions for instrument flight almost certainly suggests a greater amount of lightning damage and possible hazard from lightning discharges. Many years of experience in observing lightning problems on commercial transport aircraft (one lightning damage report per year per aircraft) indicates the areas of possibly serious problems. The techniques obtained from lightning protection development programs on nearly all commercial aircraft are often directly applicable to general aviation aircraft but require careful, intelligent application and, most important, an awareness, particularly by structure and fuel systems designers of the possible problems.
