Instrument Rating Requirements
Widen your freedom by adding an instrument rating to your credentials.
An instrument rating not only allows you to fly in clouds, but also through them. This opens the door to piloting in inclement weather as well as on flights without visual reference to the ground, horizon or landmarks.
In order to attain an instrument rating, you must first hold a private pilot’s license, have flown 50 hours cross-country time as pilot in command and 40 hours actual or simulated instrument time.
