    Sooo my question is, if you set off flying in the daylight and you only have certification to do that, then by some miscalculation end up landing after dark, do you get penalised by the aviation authorities ?

    I think you'd get into trouble, but how would they find out and what would the punishment be? Maybe Steve or Gary knows. I don't.

    The dumb thing is that legally you have to land 10 minutes before end of daylight. That's cutting things a bit fine, I reckon, but that's the rule.

    Correct. You would get into trouble and it’s easy for them to find out.
    You only have to look at FlightAware or similar to see landing times.
    I don’t know what the punishment would be, though. Maybe a fine or some compulsory retraining before being allowed to fly again.

    It shows poor planning and poor decision making for a non night-rated pilot to continue on after dark.
    Not to mention it’s dangerous. The accident records are littered with pilots who decided they “just had to get home”.

    That is all very nice, but they'd have to look, and why would they?

    True.
    Normally they look once they find a smoking hole in the ground, but it’s a bit late then.
