The instrument rating is one of the most grueling and intense training experiences that any pilot will undergo. It is arguably the hardest rating to attain due to the complexities of aircraft systems and the uncompromising demand for proficiency and precision in your flying. However, it is these factors that make instrument training essential. Not only does it dramatically improve safety and piloting skill, it also opens the door to more options for flying. Low ceilings are no longer prohibitive, provided that your instructor provides you with the right training. That’s where I come in.
The FAA requires at least 40 hours of actual or simulated instrument time, with 15 of those hours being with an instructor. Also, 20 of those hours may be credited from the use of an authorized training device. My training program strategically utilizes authorized training devices to prepare you for more training in the aircraft, saving each client money and also provides more in-depth training.
How Much Does It Cost?
It is difficult to estimate the cost of an instrument rating, but on average, it is at or near the cost of your initial private pilot training. While it is an expense, no doubt, it is also an investment in your piloting skill, and in safety. Becoming an instrument rated pilot will further enhance your flying abilities, and allow you to participate in the ultimate experience: soaring above the clouds (and through them!).SIGN UP TODAY
