Instrument Rating IR

The aim of the IR(A) modular  of the flying training course is to train pilots to the level of proficiency necessary to operate airplanes under IFR and in IMC.

The EASA Single Engine Instrument Rating enables you to make ap­proaches in poor weather, fly in Class A airspace and is typically one of the hurdles in training for a commercial flying career.

You will start your training in our state of the art FNPTII Simulator (Al­sim). Once you have achieved the required standard you will progress onto the aircraft and fly IFR routes on airways and make instrument approaches to some of the largest regional and international airports.

The IR course has a full time duration of 6 weeks.

An applicant for an IR (A) must hold a EASA/ PPL (A) including a night qualification or CPL (A), have 50 hours cross-country flight as pilot-in-command and be within the validity period of either the IR or ATPL the­oretical examinations. CPL examinations are not valid.

The applicant should demonstrate the ability to use the English language for communication and radio telephony.

An applicant for a SEP/IR or MEP/IR should be medically fit in accordance with JAR-FCL and hold a current JAR FCL Class 1 Medical Certificate.
