INSTRUMENT RATING

Instrument Rating - Airplane (Part 141)

The Instrument Rating is designed to meet the challenges of flying in inclement weather.  It is required by the FAA for flying under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR).  Generally this is the next step for individuals looking to pursue advanced training after obtaining a Private Pilot Certificate.  Students will train to Airman Certification Standards while obtaining real-world experience flying in adverse weather (when conditions permit).  Our rental aircraft are equipped with GPS equipment approved for IFR operations, so students will be able to practice utilizing state-of-the-art navigation and procedures.
