The objective of the N-VFR Course is to allow pilots to operate safely at night and to enable pilots to continue daylight flight and arrive at a suitably equipped airport after dark.
The course is intended for pleasure flying for PPL-A holders looking to improve their skills and attributions or for CPL-A holders as a part of a broader flight training program.
Flying safely under Instrumental Flight Rules, during bad weather or night operations, is an essential skill that every professional pilot must demonstrate to be able to fly in a highly coordinated system.
This course can be started at any time and the student-pilot together with World Aviation Flight Academy, will establish a theoretical and practical training schedule, which can be adapted and modified, with prior notice, according to the needs of the students-pilots.
Flight training will be carried out in the periods established by the flight instructor during the hours between 09:00 and sunset, every day of the week, including holidays, according to the availability of programming. The student-pilot must attend all the theoretical and flight classes scheduled, except only those justified for personal reasons, adverse weather, safety or problems of unavailability of aircraft, either due to mandatory revisions or unforeseen breakdowns.
World Aviation Flight Academy reserves the right not to present the student-pilot to the exams if it considers that the student-pilot is not sufficiently prepared to have a reasonable expectation of passing them.
During the N-VFR Course, the student-pilot will be covered with the insurance policies that in each case are in force in accordance with the law, exempting World Aviation Flight Academy from any additional responsibility.
The theory instruction program will be a minimum of 5hrs and include all the following elements that the student pilot will need to apply in the flight phase to obtain the VFR night rating:
The practical training part of the N-VFR Course consists of a total of 7 hrs of flight-time for pilots with an IR rating and 10 hrs of flight-time for pilots without an IR rating. The training is carried out concurrently with the theory instruction using the Cessna 172 or Piper PA28 aircraft.
The totality of the flight training will be carried out after civil twilight and concentrate on the day/night difference of taxi, take-off, cruise, descent & approach and finally landing.
This course does not involve progress or skills tests. Student progress is monitored throughout the flight training phase and adequate skill level is ensured before moving from one stage to the next.
Any additional theoretical or flight training that the student-pilot may require in order to fulfil the requirements during the course.
