This is what the government made us do in those days as part of a huge package of paperwork. It came to pass because some of the people doing laser shows at concerts were shining high powered beams directly into the audience. It became a huge headache, dealing with all the layers of bureaucracy. There was approval by the FAA so pilots would be aware, the local authorities, the federal regulators, etc., etc., etc... Its amazing Rockne got anything done! In fact, the reason he and I first worked together was because in order to put on a performance in New York City, he needed someone with a NY State laser license, which I happened to have. So I guess, something good came out of all of it after all.
