MaxFacts: Night Flights: Look At Yr LogBook Hours Lately? (Video/Quiz-Post yr score!)

MaxSez: Having been busted for a rookie error recently and having time on my hands as I wait out my Loss of Self Prestige for a week, I opened my Log Book and reviewed my records. Right off I noted the last time I got busted was 2.5 years ago! But most of all what really got my attention was my lack of “Night Hours”. With 3000+ hours of record not counting the looses caused by Server Dump’s, 90% of my hours where Day Sorties.

My fault, I can’t blame the Platform much. FDS has taken grate leaps forward in Airport infrastructure build outs. BUT, in area’s like; ALS, Taxiway Lighting, Rway Exit Marking, Aircraft Logo;, Direction Taxiway Markings/Numbering, Hi-Intensity Taxi/Landing Lights ect. There’s still a long way to go! Hopefully 20.1 will see some of these “Airport/Aircraft improvements. Each item noted has been the Topic of continuous membership Gripes.

Without the improvements noted I pledge to mix and match my day/ night sorties. I must improve my nighttime deficiencies. So should YOU!

Now as for the theme of this Topic and the learning experience. Below find a Video of a Bus Approach at JFK via the Canarcy Visual. Watch as the ALS grads you attention as this guy slips into the grove. Now that a nite lighted airport, unmistakeable from the clutter. The outer and inner flashing markers, Rway RAIL System Points a giant unmistakeable finger at the threshold. Ready, RETARD, Retard, Retard!

Bonus Quiz: Airport infrastructure by Brightbart, Can you pass this Marker Test with a 70 or better?

@Delta07. MaxSez: White &Green is unimportant till you hit a Location co-Located with a military firld like DC Andrews in the same Airspace or Norfolk with 5 airports, 4 military and only one civil.
Hope you recall this lesson learned in the long term. Good job!
