Instrument Rating

An instrument rating opens up a whole new world: mainly, the world of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). It allows you to fly in almost any weather or condition. More than that, it vastly increases your situational awareness and proficiency as a pilot.

Training for your instrument rating includes classroom instruction, flight time, and training in our full-motion simulators in order to increase your knowledge, skills, and comfort level with instrument flying.
