Instrument Rating Syllabus

Earn your Instrument Rating – make your certificate even more powerful

An Instrument rating allows you to fly in varied types of weather with reference to the flight instruments only. A pilot holding an instrument rating is less likely to be stranded on the ground during periods of low ceilings and visibility. In addition, you have the security of knowing that if the weather unexpectedly turns bad in flight, you can continue to the destination without having to divert. The Instrument Rating adds confidence and utility to your existing license even if you don’t plan to fly in more challenging weather conditions.

The FAA requires a minimum of a Private or Commercial License and a FAA Third Class Medical Certificate.
