Applicants for this type of training must be a LAPL (A) / PPL (A) pilot. The purpose of night qualification training is to teach the pilot to fly independently and safely at night under VMC conditions. It is also another step towards the procedure for training a transport pilot and a condition for obtaining a commercial pilot’s license. For recreational flying, this means you can spend more time in the air, which is an advantage especially on shorter days. Flight training is a minimum of 5 hours and is performed on a Diamond DA40D aircraft.
Theoretical training focuses on the difference between flying during the day and at night, the use of lights and orientation according to lighting at airports.
Practical training consists of circuits and navigation flights at night in pairs.
