eagle5 Posted September 19, 2013 Report Share Posted September 19, 2013 I was checking this book out recently and,...not to keep beating a dead horse (for those of you who followed "Minor Ethics Question"),...aw' who am I kidding I love beating dead horses, but,... On the title page for Night Operations, ch 14, it states:By definition, night flight is flying between the hours of sunset (end of evening civil twilight) and sunrise (beginning of morning civil twilight). Now according to our friends at the Naval Observatory (the folks who bring us the Air Almanac), sunset and the end of evening civil twilight are two completely different times (about a half hour apart)! The Glossery however does have the correct definition of night as given in the FAR/AIM sec. 1.1, so I guess this was just a minor slip? However I have not seen an errata sheet for this book, so what the hell, I thought I'd just bitch about it here! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
