VFR - Night flights

VFR - Night is a qualification category that allows you to fly at night under ground visibility conditions.

The training is primarily aimed at coping with the increased psychological burden caused by reduced visibility, difficult spatial orientation and is carried out exclusively at airports with adequate equipment.

This part of the training is essential for all professional pilots and also for pilots who have flying as a hobby.
