Night Rating for Private Pilots


Pilots wanting to gain a Night Rating are required to have some element of theoretical study as part of the course. The reason for this is that there is no separate written exam for the Night Rating; all of the theory, rules and regulations will have been covered in the initial Air Law and ATC Procedures, and Operational Procedures Courses as part of the initial PPL theoretical knowledge training.

In addition, the rules and regulations surrounding Night Flying have changed with the introduction and adoption of SERA in the UK, and Night VFR rules are different to Day VFR Rules. Not many pilots realise this!

So, in order to keep current, and to allow both pilots undergoing their Night Rating Training, and for pilots who have held a Night Rating for years, this course will bring you right up to speed with what you need to know.

Note that you will be expected to have a pre-requisite knowledge of some Air Law and Operational Procedures to begin with.

At the end of this course, you will have a thorough grounding in the relevant aspects of the subject matter that you will use in your everyday flying.

To prove you have completed the course, after you have successfully passed our on-line exam, you will be issued with a Course Completion Certificate.
