Dawn Patrol vs. Dusk Patrol

Dawn Patrol vs. Dusk Patrol. Which do you prefer?

I'll take the dusk patrol any day of the week. Sunset is by far the best time to fly!

During dawn patrols I'm still waking up and have the rest of the day looming ahead so my enjoyment is somewhat limited. At sunset, I get to relax, having accomplished my day. Then I really get to enjoy flying while watching the birds fly home and the sun go down. Plus, when it gets darker, I switch on the lights on my Stryker and fly a little night patrol .

Dawn patrol means getting up before sunrise.

Can't wake up early enough, so, dusk patrol for me.

It's a really big number.
The idea of getting up before the sun is just not natural!

Given my choice of the two listed I'll take dusk patrol. Mornings ought to be outlawed...

I would far prefer to fly at dusk, but so far this year, only the early morning has been calm enough. Still tends to be too much wind at dusk.

No, it simply means you went to bed too early

Tough choice.

Seems I have a little more flying time in the AM vice PM due to wind and light conditions.

Dawn!! I get up very early, usually between 4-5 AM and that's by choice because I'm retired. It's pretty calm around sunrise most days so that's when I do most of my flying.
