Instrument Rating (IR)
An Instrument Rating (IR) qualifies a pilot to fly in Instrument Meteorological conditions.
With this rating a pilot will have the ability to control the aircraft by sole reference to instruments and radio aids.
You may obtain your Instrument Rating as a Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot Licence holder. The theoretical subjects for a PPL and a CPL Instrument Rating are identical. The course is designed to make you a safe and proficient Instrument Pilot.
