for you G.A. pilots out there, i was wondering how you approach landing using VASI or PAPI lights at night. do you make it a habit to stay right on the glideslope or do you always descend high, to assure a safe margin between you and obstacles? i know the descent path is supposed to keep you clear of obstacles, but is it safe/smart to descend above the glideslope, especially if the runway is long and wide? do your day visual landings differ from your night landings?
