Night VFR Rating

A Night VFR Rating allows you to fly after dark, in visual weather conditions.

Night VFR Rating

The Night VFR Rating allows the holder to fly at night, in visual weather conditions.  The course for the night rating involves theory of night navigation and the human factors involved in flying at night.

The night rating course can be conducted in either our Twin Comanche or a variety of single engine aircraft, including the Cessna 152.  Completing the rating in a multi engine aircraft covers you for flying a single engine aircraft at night, but not the other way around.  After completing the theory component, our Night VFR Rating course starts with sessions of circuits to learn the basics of night flight.  The course minimum requirements stipulates at least two hours of dual circuits, and then an hour of solo circuits under the ground supervision of an instructor.

Following the circuits, we commence the navigation component of the Night VFR course.  All of the navigation flights are carried out dual, and include both controlled and non-controlled airspace training.

The final part of the course is the flight test with our Flight Examiner.  Once this is complete you are permitted to fly at night!
