Night Currency

Its been an occasional whine of mine that people don’t seem to obey the full stop rule in night currency, instead choosing to do touch and goes and saying that counts. Now I’ll admit that perhaps I am being too sticky but rules is rules and all that. Anyway, tonight I was pleased to be sharing various patterns with many different pilots, all of whom were doing stop and taxi backs.

It was a beautiful evening tonight, light mist sitting in the valleys north of Escondido, the sun setting over the coastline to the west; too bad I didn’t have my camera. Winds were almost calm, a perfect night for flying.
