Night VFR Rating

Night VFR Rating Training

A Night VFR rating is a very practical qualification as it gives you the ability to pilot an aircraft at night in VMC. It adds a new dimension and new challenges to your visual pilot training. It is an extremely useful skillset giving the ability to conduct flights departing before first light, arriving after last light or entirely at night.

The requirements for the granting of night VFR ratings include:
• Hold a private, commercial or air transport pilot licence
• Minimum 10 hours of flight at night; that includes,
• Minimum 3 hours of Instrument flight
• Minimum 5 hours dual cross country
• Minimum 1 hour solo circuits
• Pass a flight test as per the Manual of Standards

On the successful completion of the course you will have an understanding and ability to conduct basic instrument flying with the use of ground based navigation aids on flights conducted at night.

This rating can be conducted in an R44 and Bell 206 helicopters.
External helicopters can be used on request.
