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 PPL or CPL holder. The theoretical subjects for a PPL and a CPL (IR) are identical. The course is designed to make you a safe and proficient Instrument Pilot.
