Debriefing this night flight in the Van’s Aircraft RV-14 was a lot easier using the visualization and quantifiable stats built-in with CloudAhoy and using the #CloudAhoyScore to compare each pattern, approach, and landing. I was a bit loose in the pattern while getting used to #nightflying at first, but tightened up my patterns as time went on. We also investigated an intriguing Radio Failure on a Cessna 172 that was ultimately determined to be caused by a bad LED nav light.

About the Van’s Aircraft RV-14 Glare Shield, from Mike at Eye Level Aviation: As a Van’s Aircraft RV-14 builder, I had a difficult time finding a glare shield that fit so I decided to make my own. With the help of my sister, who has been sewing with leather for over 30 years and has sewn products that are utilized in Boeing flight decks, we came up with a design and prototype. We liked how it made the cockpit look professional and finished so we decided to produce a few glare shields for the Van’s Aircraft RV-14 fleet. Starting with prototypes to test on some flying Van’s Aircraft R-14s, we solicited feedback from pilots and implemented their suggestions, including a few ideas from Flight Chops. The company “Eye Level Aviation” was formed and we sell the glare shields through Aircraft Specialty Flightlines, a known and respected supplier and innovator of components for Van’s and other experimental aircraft.
