The Night Rating is a rating which can be obtained during or after your PPL course and as the name suggests, allows you to fly at night. Flying at night, you can see the landscape transform as the sunsets and the city lights slowly switch on.
Topics of the Night rating course include:
- Night familiarisation and preparation
- Night circuits
- Night navigation
- Emergency scenarios at night
- 5 hours night flying
- 5 take offs and landings at night.
Note that these requirements are a legal minimum and the number of actual hours required to obtain the licence depend on frequency of lessons and the student’s ability.
