About this deal

Would you fly in to West Virginia’s Elkins-Randolph County Airport at night? If the terrain depicted on the sectional chart doesn’t give you pause, the remarks in the chart supplement should: “Rwy 14–32 CLOSED dusk–dawn.” There’s no prohibition against landing on Runway 5/23, but factors such as terrain, lighting, obstructions, runway length available, and your familiarity with the area should influence your decision whether to stay away. Many pilots minimize risk with personal minimums that they won’t fly in mountainous terrain at night. —SD Night landing illusions Bright runway and approach lighting systems, especially where few lights illuminate the surrounding terrain, may create the illusion of less distance to the runway, causing pilots to fly a higher approach Before flying with less than 3 miles visibility, obtain training and maintain proficiency in airplane control by reference to instruments By now, you already know the solution: trust your instruments. Faith in your instruments will help you break through just about any night flying illusion so you can enjoy the beauty and peace of a quiet and safe night flight.

EC55, en-route, Hong Kong China, 2003 (On 26 August 2003, at night, a Eurocopter EC155, operated by Hong Kong Government Flight Service (GFS), performing a casualty evacuation mission (casevac), impacted the elevated terrain in Tung Chung Gap near Hong Kong International airport.) Of all the senses, vision is the most important for safe flying. When flying in conditions with limited visibility as in nighttime operations, pilots can fall victim to optical illusions that compromise their safety. Understanding how to identify the different types of nighttime illusions can help pilots avoid potential accidents when flying at night. As in other illusions, a pilot in a prolonged coordinated, constant rate turn will have the illusion of not turning [ Figure 2] Ernest Hemingway said it a lot better: “The things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist.” Night flying is really IFR flying and we need to use all of our IFR skills to assure safety during nighttime ops. Instruments will likely indicate a descent at this point, causing the pilot to try to correct for the illusion of a level descent

Rose Lynn's post: "So today I was sent home from class, after being in school for two hours, for my outfit. Because I'm developed farther than the average girl my age, I am required to go home and change... Because I look like a CURVY woman and may distract young boys, I have to miss class and change my outfit. The specific focus of this article is on the risks and illusions associated with visual approaches at night. Effects Use Visual Approach Slope Indicator (VASI) or Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) systems for a visual reference, or an electronic glide slope, whenever they are available Without peripheral visual cues to help, pilots will have trouble orientating themselves relative to Earth (horizon)
