Instrument Rating

No longer do you have to cancel your flight plans due to cloudy weather and low visibility!  Want to be a better, more proficient pilot?  Then the instrument rating is your next step.  Instrument flight training comes after your Private Pilot’s License, and allows you to operate in IMC (Instrument Meteorological Conditions) and under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules).  You will learn about weather and its effects on the aircraft and you. You will also learn to manipulate the aircraft solely by reference to your instruments and equipment.  Even if you plan only to fly in good weather, we strongly recommend the instrument rating, not only to become a more skilled pilot, but to account for everyday’s little suprises.
As an Instrument Rated Pilot you can:
  •  Operate anywhere in the US in the IFR System

  •  Operate the aircraft in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC)

  •  Fly in all types of airspace

  •  Fly into any airport with an approved Instrument Approach Procedure

  •  Have radar services available and contact with Air Traffic Control (ATC) at all times
