Itâ€™s been a year since I last flew at night. As an American private pilot, I need to be night current to take someone flying with me at night. Night currency is defined as three full stop landings more than an hour after sunset within the past 90 days.
With instructor Dominic as safety pilot, I achieved that this evening in one of the Diamond DA40s I fly.
Itâ€™s been since the beginning of May that I last flew a DA40. Most of my 2020 flight time has been spent in â€œLarge Margeâ€, the Cessna 182 with retractable gear that my husband and I enjoy flying around in. â€œLarge Margeâ€ is like flying a truck, flying the DA40 is like flying a sports car. Both are a lot of fun in their own way.
I had a lot of fun flying tonight. Become a pilot is one of my greatest accomplishments, and I hope to continue enjoying the experience for as long as possible.
