FAA Instrument Rating (IR)

FAA Instrument rating – IR(A) is a qualification that extends the privileges of PPL(A) and allows a pilot to fly according to Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) with a minimum decision height for a landing of 60m (200 feet). Once you complete your Instrument Rating training, you will get your IR/SE(A) qualification added on your FAA Private Pilot License – PPL(A). In case of a Multi-Engine IR (A), the privilege can be extended to Multi-engine operations.

The theoretical part of the training that takes place in the classroom and is taught by our flight instructors, certified by the FAA. In order to complete The Instrument Rating under Part 141, there is a minimum requirement of 30 hours of ground training.
The Ground Training is divided into 3 stages. During the ground school training, the student will have 3 exams, one for each stage.
