When the sun goes down, night regulations start up. But not all of them, just the first one. In fact, you can't even start logging night time at sunset. According to FAR 91.209 you need to have your position lights on from sunset to sunrise. One note for our friends in Alaska: the rules are a little different for you. The FARs say you need lighted position lights \"during the period a prominent unlighted object cannot be seen from a distance of 3 statute miles or the sun is more than 6 degrees below the horizon.\"
Next up is civil twilight, and more specifically, when it ends. The FAA's definition of night time is in Section 1.1 of the FARs. Here's what they have to say: \"Night means the time between the end of evening civil twilight and the beginning of morning civil twilight, as published in the Air Almanac, converted to local time.\" If you fall in that time period, you can log night flight time, and your plane needs to be night VFR equipped.
How is civil twilight computed Here's the Navy's definition: \"civil twilight is defined to begin in the morning, and to end in the evening when the center of the Sun is geometrically 6 degrees below the horizon.\" A good rule-of-thumb for calculating civil twilight is that it usually ends between 20-35 minutes after sunset. Tonight at KBJC, sunset is 7:15 PM, and civil twilight ends at 7:43 PM. That's a difference of 28 minutes.
The last piece to night flying is logging your night landings, and carrying passengers with you. According to FAR 61.57(b), to carry passengers between 1 hour after sunset and ending 1 hour before sunrise, you need to make at least 3 takeoffs and landings to a full stop in the preceding 90 days during the period beginning 1 hour after sunset and ending 1 hour before sunrise.
As long as you're using your position and anticollision lights between sunset and sunrise, logging your night flight time after the end of civil twilight, and logging your night takeoffs and landings at least one hour after sunset, you're good to go.

Nightflight is a scavenger. As a spy, he always goes for the easy score, listening in on unguarded conversations and stealing thoughtlessly-abandoned items; as a warrior, he's always on the lookout for a cheap shot and a safe kill. Many of his fellow Decepticons consider him a coward, but Nightflight knows better. He's good at what he does, and when the higher-ups take notice, they'll put him in charge of the Air Strike Patrol.
Nightflight and his patrolmates were the first Decepticon Micromasters to be created after Thunderwing's scientists reverse engineered the process from the captive Autobot Battle Patrol. When the Race Car Patrol infiltrated Thunderwing's base to rescue the Battle Patrol, the Air Strike Patrol were sent out to meet them as a field-test. Roadhandler was able to trick them into thinking that a deactivated bomb he was carrying was still live, allowing his team to rush the Decepticons and beat them down. The Autobots afterwards fled with their rescued comrades. A Small War!
When Roadhandler became an overnight wrestling sensation on Earth, Scorponok requested new warriors from Cybertron to counter the Autobot Micromasters' building public adulation. The Micromaster Air Strike Patrol, including Nightflight, subsequently arrived on Earth, donated by a Decepticon on Cybertron with an unknown, mysterious identity. While Nightflight's partner Storm Cloud challenged Roadhandler in the ring, Nightflight and his other two teammates swept the skies outside, keeping Roadhandler's fan club from entering. The Interplanetary Wrestling Championship!
Unknown to Scorponok, Nightflight's secret employer was Megatron, who then sent Nightflight and his teammates on a mission to MacDill Air Force Base. En route to the base, Nightflight and Storm Cloud indulged in some showy aerobatics, nearly crashing in the process. Admonished by Whisper, they reached the base and captured the B-204 refueling plane. When the Autobots inevitably arrived, the team contacted Scorponok to tell him that they were under attack. Back from the Dead Skin Deep After a brief confrontation with Optimus Prime and the arrival of Scorponok's Decepticons, Nightflight and his teammates fled, their mission completed. The Resurrection Gambit!
Nightflight, Storm Cloud, and Tailwind came to the aid of Whisper, after he had become a freelance assassin, when he was chased into an Earthen jungle by the Autobot Rescue Patrol. The battle ended with the AUtobots breaking off their pursuit in order to prevent further damage being deal to the surrounding forest. The Greatest Gift of All!
A news team followed the Air Strike Patrol across the southern United States, where finally the group descended on an oil refinery. When they attacked, the human civilians were defended by Hector Dialonzo, a human with extraordinary powers. While on film, Nightflight and his teammates met their apparent demise at Hector's hands. Nightflight was the third to be off-lined, though the exact manner of his death is unknown. The Human Factor!
The Air Strike Patrol took Megatron's side in a Decepticon Civil War against factions led by Scorponok and Shockwave. Near the end of that war, the Patrol chased Scorponok, alone, into a human settlement. Nightflight missed an opportunity to destroy Scorponok with his missiles thanks to his teammate Tailwind's grandstanding. Scorponok maneuvered a team of Autobots into combating the Patrol for him, enabling Scorponok to escape. Aspects of Evil!
Night Flight is an online visual-arts magazine and variety television show that originated on cable TV network USA Network. It originally aired from 1981 to 1988 before moving to syndication in the early 1990s. The show relaunched online on nightflight.com in 2015 with original episodes that can be streamed on the subscription channel Night Flight Plus. In April 2018, it returned to cable television as a short form (15 minute) program airing late Friday nights/early Saturday mornings on the network IFC. It includes a mix of mainstream and alternative music videos, artist interviews, B movies, documentaries, short films, stand-up comedy and animation.
Episodes originally lasted four hours each, and aired in the late-night programming block after 11:00 PM Eastern Time on Friday and Saturday nights. The final original broadcast of Night Flight aired December 30, 1988; it was replaced with the programs Camp Midnite and USA Up All Night starring Gilbert Gottfried, starting the following week.
Night Flight was one of the first sources in American television to see full-length and short films not generally aired on network television, or even pay-cable TV channels such as HBO. It was the first place that many Americans were able to see music documentaries such as Another State of Mind, The Grateful Dead Movie, Word, Sound and Power and Yessongs. Night Flight was also one of the first American television shows to present the music video as a serious visual art form rather than a mere promotional tool for musicians. Late-night broadcasts also afforded cable television the freedom to air portions of videos that MTV and other outlets had either censored or banned.
Night Flight's Director of Programming, Stuart Samuels, was a former professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania who also taught seminars at the annual Cannes Film Festival. He also authored a book on cult films, Midnight Movies.
The eventual backlash against the repetition of rock videos inspired Night Flight to program even more public domain animation (especially those from the Fleischer Studios, Ub Iwerks, etc.), cult and camp films in the mid- to late 1980s into the early 1990s. The show was thus instrumental in the distribution of cult, midnight movie and campy films.

Yes. Papillon Helicopters provides our guests with hotel pick-up and transport to our VIP helicopter terminal for the Las Vegas helicopter tour portion of the package. After your helicopter night flight, guests are also transferred to the Neon Museum. However, guests will be responsible for their return transport following The Neon Museum experience.
I think the biggest issue with this change is that if you flew into a smaller airport in FNF, it would be similar to a normal flight except you have a much higher chance of getting ATC. Whereas for most other events there are usually so many people departing at once you have to wait in line.It will be a good idea for people to start planning events that have more scattered departure times just to avoid these line ups. 59ce067264
