EASA Night Rating Course for Aeroplanes
The Night Rating course will build on the skills you learnt as part of your PPL(A) and adapt them for use in the hours of darkness. Once issued you can fly with or without passengers (subject to currency requirements) and take advantage of the generally smoother and less windy conditions that prevail at night.
EASA Night Rating Course Details
Before starting the night rating course you will need to have a PPL with a valid single-engine piston (land) rating and a medical with no restrictions regarding flying at night. This course can, however, be completed as the last five hours of your PPL if the time of year is correct. Night flying is available at Wycombe Air Park on certain days of the week throughout Autumn / Winter / Spring. This is generally from the end of October until the beginning of March. It is important, therefore, when planning your modular training that this is taken into account. Whilst there is no official ground school requirement for this night rating course, your instructor will guide you through the various human performance, air law and technical aspects of flight at night.
Night Rating Course Requirements
As part of your night rating course for aeroplanes, you will receive:
- 4 hours dual training on the Cessna 152
- 1 hour solo flying on the Cessna 152
- 1 month of membership to the BEA Pilot Club
- London Wycombe Air Park landing fees included in course
- Ground briefings prior and post flight
You will need to hold either an EASA PPL(A) or LAPL(A) and a current medical. 5 hours is the minimum night rating training requirement laid down by the Competent Authority. Our package is based on this requirement; any additional hours required to achieve competency will be charged at our current rates. This course may also be completed on our Piper Warrior (PA28) aircraft where desired, please contact us for details on +44 (0) 1494 443737 or email@example.com
