Ask and you shall receive: 14 CFR Part 91.209(b) ...because of the operating conditions, it would be in the interest of safety to turn the lights off...

Anti-collision lights, if the plane has them, should be used whenever the engine is running except when they interfere with ground operations. Strobes do not have to be used all the time if a beacon is on.

Here are some types of lights: A beacon is a light that flashes slowly. Strobes are the bright white lights that flash about once per second. Navigation lights are the red, green, and white lights that are on continuously.

You apparently aren't familiar with aviation regulations. Aircraft travelling in Class A airspace are *not required* to have their "stove" lights on...whatever those are. Strobe lights only need to be on under 18,000 feet. Do your research!
