The Night Rating is usually the first rating a pilot acquires after the Private Pilot’s Licence has been completed. Night flight has many advantages; the air is often calm with little or no turbulence, visibility is enhanced, there is usually less traffic. It is the most beautiful and peaceful time to fly. But we must be cautious... The horizon is obscure and there are also illusions unique to night flying. Therefore, you will have to acquire the skills necessary to fly with consistent cross reference to instruments. In addition, you will learn to fly with and without radio navigation aids as navigation is more difficult due to the lack of ground references.
