Light at night

During night flying, is there a way that the cockpit could be illuminated? I think some aircraft have it but the 777 I am flying now does not.

Yes only a few aircraft have cockpit lighting.

Do you know which ones?

Mainly newer models. I’m not exactly sure which ones…

No worries. I’ve given up night flying for the minute, flying with a near-complete black screen is dreadful. Not sure why the level of blackness used can’t be reduced or something

Ya that’s a bummer with flying at night, I usually have to cycle the day to “noon.” (With the aircrafts that don’t have cockpit lighting). Another issue is the landings lights that don’t exactly provide proper lighting for landings.

It’s a pain when trying to switch on the runway straight after landing with ATC screaming expedite!!! Lol.

Ya I feel you on that, lol!
