FLY BY NIGHT Seminar by AOPA

- | - @ MSN

Especially in light aircraft, flying after dark comes with real trade-offs. Smooth air, better performance, and stunning views are great—but they’re offset by trickier landings, invisible terrain, and limited emergency options. So what’s the key to staying safe after sundown?

ASI’s 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

Bruce Belgum will be the presenter.  He has 40 years aviation experience including corp pilot and airline pilot. His credentials include ATP, over 12,000 hours of flying. Bruce became an Aviation Safety Inspector for the FAA. He retired on May 31, 2011.

No registration required.
