Night Rating Currency

To fly passengers at night, pilots must ensure they have completed 5 take-offs and landings at night within the past 6 months. This rating is the most common rating for a Canadian pilot to achieve following the issuance of a private pilot license. The night rating sign off can be done by most Authorized Persons in Canada or directly at a Transport Canada civil aviation center.
