Flying at night is an amazing experience that every pilot should experience in their flying career. Adding a Night Rating to your Private Pilot License or Commercial License is a handy addition to improve your flying skills as well as increase the flexibility in your flight planning.

All pilots in Australia without an instrument rating are limited to only flying by day, a Night VFR rating allows you to remove the “day” limit and fly at night in Visual Meteorological Conditions (VMC). A Night rating is the perfect start for those pilots also considering moving on to gain their Instrument Rating (NVFR hours will count towards your Instrument Rating). Even those pilots with an Instrument Rating will benefit from holding a NVFR rating.

The Aircraft Australia Night VFR rating provides you with ample flying time to allow you to develop your skills and to feel confident flying at night.

The syllabus we have developed allows you flexibility to complete the rating at your pace. Our fixed price option means you will also know your investment up front so no surprises at the end.
