Night Flight – 12/8/2010

Today I did part of my night flight requirements, weather was nice and I had a lot of fun and learned bunch of new stuff related to night flight.

We stayed in WHP pattern and did landings and takeoffs. On landing part, the most challenging part is to determine the altitude when I’m on short final.

On the other hand it’s very easy to get disoriented on night, since there is no visual reference to check, so paying more attention to instrument flight is the key.

Our next night flight is planned to be a cross country to SMX.

Flight Time : 1.3 hr
Landings: 9
