The Private Pilot License enables you to fly during VFR conditions from sunset to sunrise in any Canadian registered airplane you are already licensed in. With your night rating, you are free to take to the skies whenever you wish, now that you have no need for the sun. Sunrise flights are spectacles of beauty that are available only to a few, and getting your night rating could admit you to this exclusive group.
In order to obtain your night rating, you must complete a total of 20 hours of flight time, including:
Once a student has successfully completed the minimum amount of flight time AND has been deemed competent by an authorized person to fly at night, the night rating will be issued.
All applicants must already hold a PPL, therefore at least 5 of the instrument hours will already be completed within the PPL training syllabus.
Regardless of long or short term personal goals, ALL APPLICANTS MUST hold a valid private pilot license.
