Safety training
Flying at night in a single engine aircraft poses greater risk than during daylight hours; consequently, the following factors are considered before operating at night:

i Risk of adverse weather, e.g. fog
ii Suitability of landing sites
iii Terrain
iv Pilot currency
v Radio failure procedures
vi Availability of alternate airfields

Before each flight a briefing takes place covering emergency procedures.
