The FAA launched a new website today where pilots and others can report incidents of lasers being shined at aircraft. It includes links for reporting laser incidents, laser statistics and FAA research on the dangers lasers can pose to pilots. Laser event reports have increased steadily since the FAA started collecting information from pilots in 2005, rising from almost 300 in 2005 to 1,527 in 2009 and 2,836 in 2010. To date this year, 2,795 laser events have been reported.
