We consider here the problem of dazzling that may be experienced by an aircraft crew when landing under favorable meteorological conditions and cloudless sky, caused by certain optical properties of the atmosphere and sensitivity range of a human eye. The nowadays theories of slant visual range in the atmosphere are also briefly reviewed in the paper. We propose a specialized program to help avoiding the dazzling of aircraft crews when landing under the SMC. We recommend that atmospheric optical characteristics must to be taken into account to provide for higher flight safety.
