Doncaster Sheffield Airport is open 24 hours a day which is one of the many advantages of learning at a Commercial Airport.
- Five hours ground school instruction
- 10 hours of dual instrument flying
- Five hours of night flying, including five solo circuits with take-off and landings.
Once completed, the Night rating allows a pilot to fly any helicopter during official night (defined as the period between 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise).
