Night Rating

The Night Rating is a great addition to your PPL. The course is 5 hours long, 3 of which must be dual flight training. You will also have to complete 5 solo take-offs and landings at night under supervision.

You will complete night circuits, navigation and emergencies. There are no flight tests or exams involved.

On completion of the Night Rating you will be entitled to fly between official night and official day (30 minutes after sunset, and 30 minutes before sunrise respectively). This can provide spectacular views, as well as providing more variety and experience to your flying.

A Night Rating can also be invaluable if you get delayed during a flight and need to land at night, instead of diverting to a different airfield.

For those thinking of becoming a professional pilot, it is also a requirement to hold a night rating in order for the grant of a commercial pilots licence.
