Instrument Flight Course

Once you have acquired the skills of a private pilot and have received your license, greater horizons lay ahead. An instrument rating or flying by reference to instruments allows you the freedom to fly without outside visual reference and under the control of the FAA Airspace System. You will develop a thorough understanding of the flight instruments and how to interpret them with precision; that is, providing you with precise control of the airplane. Your flying is no longer limited to fair weather and "clear of clouds". Bad weather, under most conditions, will no longer put a stop to your flight plans. Instrument flying adds more knowledge and skill to your flying ability as well as enhances your confidence and safety. You will become part of a more "elite" group of pilots, who understand how to navigate purely by reading the airplane's instruments. Once this challenging and satisfying rating is achieved, new opportunities and dimensions are added to your flying.

To obtain your Instrument Rating, pilots need to complete a minimum of 40 hours of dual instruction in addition to having logged at least 50 cross-country pilot-in-command hours.
