The Instrument Rating is a modular course to qualify pilots to fly under Instruments Flight Rules.

This course trains pilots to operate as Pilot in Command (PIC) on single-engine or multi-engine aircraft under Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) and in accordance with Instrument Flight Rules. It is also one of the most useful ratings for private pilots, especially during long-distance flights.

It is a very hard training, which requires great precision, control and manoeuvrability of the aircraft. This type of rating will allow you to fly the aircraft at over 200 ft – even in low visibility conditions – using only your instruments.
