Night landings substituted for night hours

I’m a little fuzzy on this topic…
I have 1200 hours total time, 90 night hours…I qualify for the restricted ATP at 1250… the regional that I’m going to said I need a total of 1225 before entering ATP/CTP because I will get 25 hours of Sim training that I can count towards the 1250.
My question is… If You can substitute night landings for night hours (Up to 25 hours)
Does that mean technically I have 1225 hours? Or does that just mean I can use those landings to for fill the rest of my night requirement?
Hope this makes sense I can’t seem to find an answer!


The latter. Night landings can only be credited towards night time, not total time.

How do you land at night,what is the procedure.


Not sure I understand your question? It’s the same as landing during the day except it’s dark. Kind of the same way you drive your car at night.

Exactly the same as you do during the day, just with the help of really bright landing lights.
