Instrument Rating Academy

Fly through clouds, rain, or fog without visual references to the ground, horizon, and other landmarks.

Program Overview

After getting your Private Pilot License, the next step is getting Instrument Rating. In this phase, you’ll discover that it’s much nicer flying above those clouds where the air is calm, and the visibility is endless.

It will all start feeling like being a true professional pilot. For many new pilots, the training provided in the instrument rating is the first glimpse at how the National Airspace System, radar, and air traffic control works. All important concepts as you will now be qualified to fly in the same airspace that the turbine airplanes.

For others, it is usually the first time they’ve been allowed to enter the clouds or fly on a dark and stormy night, known as flying in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) on an Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) flight plan.
