Unless you are testing specific items related to specific night conditions,ie NVG,IR, lighting, then I wouldn`t start digging a hole yet..
Suggest you also read-up on the Airbus accident,and also the UKAAIB report on the `runaway`737`. Second and third questions will be `WHY`,WHY ...? ?
Third Q,if you are in a land of cedar trees,think also about recent accidents,at night to aircraft not doing flight-testing....
Notwithstanding the first paragraph,why would you want to wait all day,and then go testing at night ?...far better to sleep well,and go early in the morning....

thank you sycamore.....i agree with you 100%
The bean counters asked the question and it had to be answered with a reference to shut them up for good

I don`t know of a reference ,but it is usually filed under `Common Sense` ,and also `Airmanship`....!

Yes, but why is it that 90% of the time test airplanes always seem to get signed out at the stroke of twilight?
