hi, i'm thinking of buying a pair of binoculars to have in my flight bag as i have found landing strips sometimes difficult to spot. Do most of you PPL's carry a pair with you on a flight or do you find them too difficult to use due to cockpit vibrations, distortions from the window, glare etc.

so, is it worth the investment?

Regarding cockpit vibrations, you are now able to get binoculars with Image Stabilisation in them, that counter-acts shake. Wouldn't know how good or bad they'd be for flying though. Couldn't use them solo I'd say...
