Learn to fly at night

The Night Visual (VFR-N) Rating course is optional for any VFR-rated PPL or CPL, but it is a prerequisite mandatory to all those pilots who want to obtain an Instrument Rating (IR or IR/ME).


Whether you do it for fun, just to enjoy the pleasure of flight at night, or because you are starting your training towards an Instrumental Rating, the VFR night Rating is one of the most amazing experiences.

No other course brings you the opportunity to feel and live the spectacularity to fly and land for first time at night than the VFR night rating.

Be prepared to lead your senses to a higher level: the darkness, the uncertainty to know if you are really in the correct runway slope, the visual navigation reduced, all this will help you improve your skills as a pilot.

Flying safely under Instrumental Flight Rules, during bad weather or night operations, is an essential skill that every professional pilot must demonstrate to be able to fly in a highly coordinated system.


The course is composed of 12 hours of ground school.

  • Air Law
  • Navigation
  • Meteorology
  • Basic Philosophy
  • Flight Planning
  • Aircraft General Knowledge (systems & instrumentation)
  • Visual Night Flight

The flight training phase is composed of 12 hours of instruction, on an agreed schedule with the instructor.


The approximate duration of the course is 2 weeks, allowing the student to complete the ground school and flight training simultaneously.


Applicants must comply with the following:

  • Hold a valid PPL or CPL license
  • Hold a valid Class II Pilot Medical Exam
