Accelerated Instrument Rating Program
The Accelerated IFR Program is for students who want to complete their training expeditiously. We offer an intense training program for pilots seeking to train as often as possible and accomplish the training in under four weeks. The program includes both flight training and ground instruction.
Flying Academy’s primary goal is to ensure that you become a safe and competent pilot. Your success will be a result of your knowledge, skill, and sound decision making.
Advantages of Accelerated Flight Training with Flying Academy
Students need to obtain a FAA medical certificate, minimum 3rd class or better, prior to enrollment to the program.
- Hold at least a current private pilot certificate
Every student that is not an US citizen looking to train in the USA will be required to get Transport Security Administration (TSA) approval to start flight training. Once approval is granted you may start the course. Foreign students will be required to present their VISA to apply for the flight training permit with TSA.
A significant part of your theoretical training will be carried out remotely from wherever you may be prior to starting your practical training. This will enable you to start your training quickly without delay, which will provide a strong foundation of theoretical knowledge.
Students will have an option to attend Flying Academy Online Classes or other ground preparation portals such as Flying Academy’s eLearning system.
Get ahead: Take the FAA Knowledge Exam before starting training with Flying Academy
The Instrument Rating knowledge exam requires an endorsement from a certified flight or ground instructor confirming that you are ready to take the test. Students who wish to take the Private Pilot test will receive an endorsement from our CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) once they have successfully completed the Flying Academy Instrument Rating Online Ground School or provide at least three practice knowledge exams with a score greater than 80%.
