Night Qualification for Helicopter
As a private pilot, you are also allowed to take off after dark. The requirement for flying under visual flight rules: Possession of a night rating.
The effort for the night qualification is definitely worth it: After all, many sights unfold all their fascination only at night. Just think about Frankfurt’s skyline…
These conditions must be fulfilled before commencement of the training:
- 100 flight hours as pilot on helicopters since acquisition of PPL(H) licence
- 60 flight hours as pilot in command
- 20 hours cross-country flight
