The Instrument Rating is the next step after obtaining a private pilot license. It enables you to perform instrument flights in any weather conditions and at any altitude. We can offer courses according part 141 or part 61.
With a Private Pilot License you are only able to perform visual flights. That means you can only fly during good weather conditions with a clear and visible horizon. You must avoid clouds and any other dangerous weather events (fog, rain, low visibility etc.). You need to complete the Instrument Rating in order to fly during bad weather, in the clouds, with limited visibility, or with no horizon.
Some believe that the Instrument Rating exam is the most difficult exam among all other flight ratings and categories. It seems to be true, because people believe only in their own feelings – vision, hearing, vestibular apparatus and inner feelings. When performing an instrument flight in the absence of a visible, natural horizon, a pilot must force himself to look at the instruments, and the most difficult part – to trust them! You may feel that you are flying upside down or your plane is falling, while in fact it flies normally.
We pay special attention to this course, because the safety of the pilot and passengers in bad weather conditions totally depends on its successful completion.
This course approved by FAA and contains three different stages. Each of them includes obligatory ground and flight training. Each stage is followed with a test, which is carried out by a chief pilot assistant or an instructor. All of the classes are taught in accordance with the standard Jeppesen training program.
Once the exam is passed, the student receives the Instrument Rating, which allows him to perform instrument flights in bad weather conditions.
