Night Rating NF(A)

Holders of a Pilots Licence can fly a light aeroplane in daylight hours but you should consider upgrading your PPL or LAPL to include a Night Rating allowing you to fly after sunset (quite useful when flying during the winter months). The holder of a night rating is able to fly with passengers during the hours of darkness
