Do you worry about getting back before the dark sets in? Why let the sunset dictate when you have to come home after a great days flying!
The night qualification is probably the most enjoyable qualification any aviator can achieve, and the one with the least training time. A minimum of just five hours flight time is required to obtain this qualification.
The qualification allows you to carry passengers at night (subject to certain PPL restriction and currency requirements)- this opens up a whole new world of flying adventures! Flying at night is very different to daylight flying and many find it more enjoyable.
Prior to commencing the course you will need to hold a PPL(A) or LAPL(A), alternatively it can be undertaken whilst training for the PPL(A) or LAPL(A).
For more information about the Night Rating please see pages 286-287 of the CAP 804 document issued by the CAA in conjuction with EASA.
