Instrument Rating

The Instrument Rating is the next step up in aviation after the Private Pilot’s License. While a Private Pilot is mostly limited to flying in good weather only, the Instrument Rating allows pilots to fly in poor weather, allowing for more flexibility in when they get to go fly.

There is no minimum number of hours of training required for the Instrument Rating, however training typically takes between 35 – 50 hours for most pilots.

Training costs will vary dramatically throughout the Instrument Rating since pilots in training can now use safety pilots occasionally instead of flying with a flight instructor the entire time. Our flight simulator, a Redbird Flight Training Device, can also be used during the Instrument Rating, and up to 10 hours of which can be logged towards the requirements of the Instrument Rating.
