Shorter days mean more chances for night flyingShorter days mean more chances for night flying

Now that autumn has returned and the United States is back on standard time, earlier sunsets make this a good time to get current on night landings.

Federal regulations (FAR 61.57[b][1]) state that in order to act as pilot in command of an aircraft carrying passengers during the period from one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise, the pilot must have made at least three takeoffs and landings to a full stop during the same period (one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise) within the preceding 90 days.
