This multi-media course on CD-ROM aims to provide the private pilot with a complete training course for the JAA Night Qualification.
It offers full interactive, graphically-rich, computer based training and covers the revision of basic instrument flying techniques through to a full navigational night flight complete with emergencies. There is no other product on the market equivalent to this quality programme produced by Oxford Air Training School.
Night flight is not visual flight. The aircraft is flown by reference to the flight instruments and may be positioned using visual references in visual conditions. When there is little visual information it is a test for even the experienced pilot and should be taboo for the inexperienced. The privilege to enter this dark realm has stringent criteria. Night flight is not difficult but it must be properly planned and prepared. It is a time when your assistant pilot can be the greatest help or the greatest hindrance. There are three uses for the night rating: to allow continuance of a delayed, daytime cross-country; to allow deliberate night sectors in VMC; or to explore local scenic opportunities and rewards. Night Flight is a part of the Command Instrument Rating, an option for the PIFR and a pre-requisite for the Instructor's Rating.
