Course Description

To qualify for the JAA Night Qualification the holder of a PPL does not have to take any tests, but must provide the CAA with evidence that the required training has been undertaken. This consists of 5 hours of dual and solo flying, at night, both in the circuit and on a navigation exercise. This multimedia CD-ROM covers revision of basic instrument flying techniques and reminds the student of the physiological aspects of night flying, particularly the limitations of the human eye in low light conditions. It then moves on to describe aircraft lighting, both internal and external, as required by the Air Navigation Order, followed by a detailed briefing on airfield lighting for both general aviation airfields and larger commercial airports. The final lessons deal with the night flight itself. Firstly, you will be taken through circuits and landings at night, concentrating on those phases of flight which require sole reference to instruments and on the care required with use of in-cockpit lighting and electrical systems. The course concludes with a lesson on night navigation, paying particular attention to emergencies specific to night flying.
