Once a Private Pilot Licence is achieved training to fly at Night can commence. Night flying is very enjoyable, but new skills are required. This skill can extend your enjoyment and accomplishment as a pilot, and your ability to continue flying after the sun goes down or start flying before sunrise.
The training for a Night VFR rating involves 16 hours of training. This encompasses:
- take-off and landing at night training with an instructor
- solo take-off and landing practice
- three night flights to other destinations to practice navigation with an instructor
- a night flight test
