SAFETY INSTITUTE SEMINAR
Topic: "Fly By Night"
Thursday, October 19th, 2017,
EAA Chapter 44 Sport Aviation Center
Especially in light aircraft, flying after dark
comes with real trade-offs. Smooth air, better performance, and
stunning views are greatóbut theyíre offset by trickier landings,
invisible terrain, and limited emergency options. So whatís the key
to staying safe after sundown?
ASIís new seminar looks at night flying from a
risk management perspective. Using decades of accident data, we
identify common problems and recommend the best ways to avoid them.
Along the way, we talk about:
- Requirements for pilots and aircraft
- Unique flight planning considerations
- Why all nights are not created equal
- Things that can take you by surprise
