An instrument rating qualification permits you to fly in IMC conditions, which are less than visual flight (VMC) conditions. The term ‘instrument’ used in this rating means that the pilot flies using only the instruments in the plane. The qualification gives you greater possibilities to land at the desired time and the desired airport. If you plan to fly with the aim of developing your business, this qualification is definitely for you.

The theory course consists of 150 ground hours, 100 of which are completed independently at home. Practical flying consists of 50 flight hours.
