About the Program
Earning your Instrument Rating is the next logical step after earning your Private Pilot License. The rating is supplementary to the Private Pilot and Commercial Rating. It qualifies the pilot to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Having this capability affords new opportunities personally and professionally
Flying with an Instrument Rating (IR) expands the flight territory in which a pilot can safely operate. You will learn how to safely fly in inclement weather and be licensed to do so. This is unlike the PPL, which operates under Visual Flight Rules (VFR).
