PAPI lights do not function during daytime
New, NormalPublic

Description

The precision approach path indicator lights, classname Land_Runway_PAPI, do not shine a visible light during daylight hours. According to Wikipedia, real life PAPI lights are visible at up to 5 miles / 8 kilometers during the day, assuming clear weather conditions.

This can be an issue for inexperienced or rusty pilots trying to follow a proper glideslope while learning to fly civilian or older military fixed-wing aircraft.
