General

Night-VFR flights can only be performed to airfields with runway lighting, cross-country flights are also possible at night. Night-VFR is sheduled from sunset+30 minutes(ECET) to sunrise-30 minutes(BCET).


Characteristics of Night-VFR

  • Flight plan fieling is mandatory. The flight plan may include, illumined landmarks, airfields, cities or other navigational facilites.
  • NVFR flights do not need to stay in controlled Airspace, as long as the Airspace flown in is Radar covered
  • Instructions to follow other aircrafts will not be given by ATC.
  • NVFR flights shall contact a appropiate Radar Station, when requested, for ATS Services and Coverages
  • ATS stations can, if needed, give Traffic informations, when the Controller thinks, the VFR traffic can effect an IFR Flight
  • NVFR flights must have more equipment to fly in the conditions, compared to Day VFR flights. Therefore it can be considered an ACFT requesting NVFR and does not stay in the Traffic Pattern of an Airfield, the ACFT is usually IFR equipt
  • NVFR departures from an uncontrolled airfield are limited to those, which have the required Lights available for a night service, if the Airfield is not equipt as needed, it is in the end the pilots decision for TakeOff but you cannot give the pilot a TakeOff Clearance.
  • If necessary, you can ask the NVFR Flight to hold a visual Heading, that means he is responsible for ground and traffic seperation, and as long as there is no request for a simulated Approach, he can decide what to do, it is just a suggestion.
