A night flight is one of the most pleasant forms of a flight. Every city looks good at night. The shining lights, the stars, the moon and the reflections come together, creating a spectacle of which many dreams. However, the night flight requires a different technique, perspective and factors than daily operations. The aircraft must be flown in relation to the onboard instruments, and the external visual references take on a new meaning, at the same time ensuring different illusions. A night flight can be a test for even the most experienced pilot.

    • Route planning, pilot navigation, and dead people count
