Night VFR Training

Night VFR Training is an exciting opportunity to embark on a new world of night flight! With the Night VFR Rating, you’ll gain greater flexibility in your travel plans as restrictions on flying between first and last light will be lifted. The instrument and navigation skills introduced in this course will not only improve your ability to cope with VFR situations, but also serve as a great introduction for later Instrument Rating. During the course, candidates will undergo training to fulfill the requirements of CASR Subpart 61.O to attain a NVFR Rating and SEA Night Endorsement. The course can be completed full-time or part-time, with the first flight of the syllabus conducted in daylight and all following flights in the early evening from approximately 5-10 pm, depending on the season. Upon completing the course, you will have acquired essential knowledge and practical skills and be ready to soar towards your goals!

Course Structure:

Prior to commencement of the flight component of the course, the following four theory briefings will be completed, covering NVFR operations:

1) NVFR Human Factors     2) NVFR Legislation     3) NVFR Circuits     4) NVFR Navigation

Upon completion of the required theory, and an in-house theory assessment on the associated aeronautical knowledge components, the candidate will advance to the flying syllabus, as follows below. This course assumes the candidate holds a PPL and therefore has completed 2.0 hours of BIF prior to commencement of the course.


After completing the above flying syllabus, the HoO will recommend the candidate to be flight tested for the NVFR Rating with SEA Night Endorsement. The flight test is typically 2.5-3.0 hours flight time.
