Night VFR Rating

Full time, Part time or casually... your choice





A Night VFR Rating can be conducted in either a Single Engine or Multi Engine depending on the needs of the student. A Multi Engine Night VFR allows you to also fly a single engine aircraft at night, but a Single Engine NVFR does not allow you fly Multi Engine aircraft at night.

Night VFR Rating (NVFR)
Theory, Flying, Flight Test

Step 1 - Theory

Theory briefings are conducted in house prior to night flying. There is no CASA exam, although we do conduct our own in house exams to check student knowledge and progress.

Step 2 - Flying:

Consists of flying both in the circuit area, and navigational flights. We start in the circuit area so students experience the differences in operating aircraft at night, before navigating, and applying the same skills are other airports. 

Step 3 - Flight Test:

After completing the required flying, you will be ready for the flight test. The test is conducted by a Flight Examiner and will include both a oral questionnaire and a flight component.  

CASA Requirements

Flight time & Experience:

CASA require that you have, as a minimum:

  • 10 hours of aeronautical experience at night
