Sunset to Sunrise
The night qualification is one of the most popular “add-ons” to the PPL, and with good reason. Apart from the added flexibility this allows the pilot, there is something magical about flying at night. It brings its own challenges and rewards, but demands different skills of the pilot from conventional day-VFR flight. Highly-respected aviation author David Robson has written a valuable addition to any PPL’s library covering the unique considerations involved with night operations with information and practical techniques on:
• Flying on instruments
• Human factors, including night vision, fatigue, hypoxia, and more
• Preflight preparations
• Aircraft and airport lighting
• Cross-country planning, navigating using both pilotage and dead reckoning
• Take-offs and landings
• Emergency situations
