Brief Description:

With the FAA recently clearing the way for efficient access to Night Operations/Night Flight for Commercial and Recreational UA/drone pilots, understanding the challenges gains greater importance, as Night Operations become more prevalent.

Flight in the dark hours and areas present greater challenges. The idea of “I can see the aircraft better because it’s lighted” ignores many key elements and challenges related to night flight. Scotopic/mesopic vision, parallax issues, night blindness, rod blow-out, and other factors significantly increase the risk factor, and mitigation factors for UA in the night.

In this seminar, we’ll discuss optical (eyesight) issues, risk mitigations for all challenging components, discuss which lighting equipment is best vs accessing the bare minimum equipment requirements, safety protocols, industry standards/best practices, and planning operations for maximum success.
