I want to equip my airplane originally for night VFR, and gradually move up to be IFR equipped, so I have a few questions along those lines.
1) What are the requirements equipment wise for night VFR? I know there are strobes and nav beacons required, but I'm a bit fuzzy on the details. There seem to be different options available to satisfy the requirements.
2) I don't have to have my aircraft 'IFR certified' if it's an experimental, do I?
3) What are the minimum equipment requirements to fly my plane IFR?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
