Farnsworth Lantern (FALANT) testing locations

Just a note:: I believe FSDO will not adminster the FALANT; they will only administer the Light Signal Gun Test.

To take the FALANT, you need to contact your FAA Regional Office or find someone else to administer it for you (i.e. College, University, Private Physician, etc.).

Farnsworth Lanterns at two of my offices. (979) 393-0161 or email mark@uohpartners.com

Also I believe the Houston College of Optometry has one. We complete the required forms (FAA DD 2489 and issue a letter to the FAA) Or if you come for your regular FAA exam, it is just part of the regular exam if you fail the other color plates. Also be sure to try the Dvorine plates. We have found many color deficient pilots can pass these. Any AME who performs AirTraffic Control physicals will have Dvorine. - P.
