Night Ratings

Get ready to stay out late!

Night Flight Training

A night rating consists of a minimum of 20 hours of flight training split between night flying and instrument training. Students may roll over up to 5 hours of their PPL instrument training and can complete half of their instrument time in our simulator.   The 10 hours of night flying includes 5 hours of dual time, including a minimum of 2 hours of cross country time.  The remaining 5 hours must be solo, and this must include a minimum of 10 take-offs and landings.   There is no written or flight test to complete, but all applicants must possess a PPL and hold a valid medical certificate (Category 1 or 3) to be able to fly at night.   Training can typically be completed in 1 to 2 weeks.
