Training - Night Rating

Training – Night Rating

(Effective February 02, 2024)

The Pacific Flying Club offers a Night Endorsement based on 20 hours of flight time as part of the Commercial Pilot Program. A Private Pilot Licence is required. Five hours of night dual is required as well as five hours of night solo flight time. Additionally, 10 hours of dual instrument time is required. Any dual instrument time that the pilot has previously logged can be credited towards the 10-hour instrument required.

The Night Rating forms part of the requirements of the Commercial Pilot Licence. To be recommended to hold the rating, the student must meet the required standard. There is no flight test. “Students may have instrument time from PPL, that will count towards the 10-hour requirement (reducing cost of instrument time)”.

5 Hours solo instruction@ $176/hour$880
10 hours dual instrument instruction@ $252/hour$2,520
