Night Rating

 

 

A night rating allows you to fly at night! The air is generally calm and the view is fantastic! The Night Rating increases your flexibility, letting you continue your flight after dark, so you need not be grounded when the sun goes down! The night rating allows a pilot to fly in VMC and navigate in visual reference to the ground, at night. This is different from instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) where the pilot flies and maintains situational awareness strictly by using instruments and avionics.

Great people, very friendly and nice welcome! Visited from Germany as an ultralight pilot, got to fly 1h-roundtrip under the supervision of FI Jules and Dad as a passenger in the backseat . Briefing, flight, organisation, fares…… perfect! To recommend and I’ll surely be back one day.
