First Flight... at night!

This is not a picture of Myself, but it could be because yesterday I flew at night for the first time.
For this flight the mission was quite simple. Circuit patterns. You all know from previous posts some procedures when we are within a circuit pattern of an aerodrome, this time the propose of these was to let to adapt to night operations. Doing the same but with different conditions.

This time the aircraft was the Cessna C-150 with the registration CS-APA, apart from a very hot night and a somewhat surprising gust this flight went very well. During the flight I had to perform some procedures such as approach without landing light, simulated engine failure approach, short approach and others.

Despite of the non operational instrument lights I enjoyed very much this flight and I can't wait for the next one!
