Night Operations


Seaplane Skiplane Flying MenuEmergency Open Sea Operations >Night Operations

Night landings in seaplanes on open water are extremely dangerous with a high possibility of damage or loss of the seaplane. A night landing should only be performed in an extreme emergency when no other options are available. A night landing on a lighted runway exposes the seaplane to much less risk.

If operating at night, equip the seaplane with parachute flares, smoke floats, glow sticks, or other markers.
