An instrument rating builds on a pilot’s existing skills by introducing them to flight by reference to the instruments. The private pilot certificate is all about looking outside, but this is all about the inside. In addition to making you a more competent pilot, this rating gives you more tools at. your disposal for handling less than optimal flight conditions. An instrument rating isn’t just about flying in the clouds, though, it’s about precision flying and not compromising in the airplane.
We’ll introduce you the basics of instrument flying, with a special focus on systems and capabilities. We’ll also train you for the situation you never want to deal with: flying in a could while dealing with a system failure. With an instrument rating, you’ll be a better, more accurate, and safer pilot overall.
