To Fly in Any Conditions

Mastering your instruments and obtaining an Instrument Rating will allow you to act as Pilot In Command (PIC) for departure, flight, and arrival without visual reference or in marginal weather and light conditions under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Being able to fly regardless of conditions greatly increases your pilot career options.

Instrument Rating training takes a minimum of 40 flying hours, which includes 20 hours of flight simulator training and 20 hours of practical flight training. During the course, you will be taught and assessed in navigation aid tracking, instrument approaches, emergency procedures, take-off procedures and landing procedures.

To be able to commence this course, you must already hold a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL).
