If you can’t currently fly (at low level) at night or in bad visibility/low cloud, that’s at least half of the time you’re missing out on revenue. Plus the outcomes for your clients, the environment and communities are much better if you can operate effectively at night.
Can I still fly my aircraft with a pilot onboard?Skybase2021-09-26T08:53:54+00:00
