Todays Flying Tip - Logging Night Flight

Logging Night Flight

Logging of night flight should be made from the end of evening civil twilight to the start of morning civil twilight. This is approximately from ½ hour after sunset to ½ hour before sunrise. Note, this definition does not serve for the purpose of meeting night currency. That is still from one hour after sunset until one hour before sunrise. So basically FAA has three definitions of night.

• Sunset to sunrise – aircraft position lights must be on
• ½ hour after sunset to ½ hour before sunrise – may be logged as night flight
• 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour before sunrise – may be used for landings to attain/maintain currency to carry passengers at night.

Welcome to the LMEA Flying Club

For more than forty years, the LMEA Flying Club has made flying less expensive, more convenient, less hassle, and more fun for generations of Lockheed Martin employees, their immediate family, retirees, and full-time vendor personnel at the Georgia facility (eligibility requirements). Our airplanes are conveniently located ten miles northwest of Lockheed Martin at Cobb County- McCollum Airport. Check out the many benefits your membership provides.

A fleet of well-maintained airplanes for traveling or training

The LMEA Flying Club has three aircraft: two Cessna 172M's (150 hp, fixed gear and prop) and Cessna R182 (235 hp retractable gear, constant speed prop) available for local, cross-country or multi-day trips. All three airplanes contain full IFR instrumentation, intercoms and Garmin moving-map GPS and are maintained with our uncompromising standards of safety.

Fly for an hour, a day or even a week

Once you've earned your Private Pilot license, the LMEA Flying Club knows you don't want to simply fly around the Atlanta area - you want to travel the country. That's why our airplanes are available for overnight, weekend and week-long trips (see rules), allowing you to visit out-of-state family members, or explore distant vacation spots - without the hassles of driving or airline schedules. With our computerized scheduling system, you can check airplane and instructor availability, and schedule your future flights on the web or by telephone - 24 hours a day.

Fly for less

The LMEA Flying Club has always been committed to keeping our rental rates low (see rental rates). Since we are a non-profit organization, our rates only reflect the true cost of flying and maintaining our fleet. Our hourly rate is based on tach time, not Hobbs time as at most FBOs. This means students practicing touch-and-gos or members holding short of the runway for extended periods will pay less. As a result of these savings, we have the lowest rates on comparable aircraft found anywhere in metro-Atlanta. Additionally we offer convenient monthly billing - no need to bring your checkbook when you rent. If you buy fuel at another airport, just send the receipt with your monthly statement, we'll credit your account.

Want to become a pilot or upgrade your current ratings?

The LMEA Flying Club is the place to start. Our combination of low rates, convenient airplane and instructor scheduling, well-maintained airplanes and monthly billing make the LMEA Flying Club your best choice to help you become a pilot and enjoy the pleasures of flying.
