The Training

  • Minimum 15 hours in instrument flying as ‘Pilot under Training’.
  • Pass a written theoretical knowledge examination.

Privileges

  • When the aeroplane is taking off or landing at any place when the flight visibility below cloud is less than 1,500 metres.
  • Class A airspace.

Night Rating

This is a relatively short 5 hour course. A night rating allows a pilot to fly at night exercising visual flight rules (VFR). The night rating is non-expiring (it has lifetime validity).
