Training - Night Rating

PFC tarmac

The Pacific Flying Club offers a Night Endorsement course based on 20 hours of flight training. A Private Pilot Licence is required and it is a requirement of a Commercial Pilot Licence. The Night Rating is also useful for holders of a PPL.

Five hours of night dual is required as well as 5 hours of night solo flight time. Ten hours of dual instrument time is also required. Any dual instrument time that the pilot has previously logged can be credited towards the 10-hour instrument requirement. To be recommended to hold the rating, the student must meet the required standard. There is no flight test.

5 Hours dual instruction @ $188/hour $940
5 Hours solo instruction    @ $132/hour $650
10 hours dual instrument instruction @ $188/hour $1,880
Transport Canada Endorsement & AP Fees      $75
Total Costs   $3,555

Note: The breakdown is for instruction in a Cessna 152. The costs of a night rating are already included in the Commercial Pilot Licence pricing. A maximum of 5 of the required instrument hours may be done in a simulator. Fuel surcharges will apply where fuel costs exceed the base rate. Prices subject to change. (Effective April 21, 2016)
