Night flying training includes at least five hours’ flying time, as well as a compulsory night-flying theory course. The entire course must be completed within six months. Theory courses take place each autumn, and are also available as private tuition.

Before you start, you must have completed at least 100 flying hours after passing your PPL(H) examination, of which 60 hours must correspond to pilot-in-command (PIC), including 20 hours of cross-country flying.
This restriction does not apply if the night-flying course is for the purpose of obtaining a commercial pilot's license (see below).

Private pilots must undergo an additional ten hours of instrument flying, of which five may take place in a simulator.
After training, you will be entitled to carry out night flights subject to visual flight rules.

Important for CPL candidates:
Night flying training may be combined with CPL training. The five flying hours prescribed do not however count as part of the thirty-hour CPL module, and must be carried out separately. The above-mentioned minimum hours prior to training (100 hours after PPL; 60 hours as PIC) are not a requirement in this case.
