Instrument Pilot Training 

If you are a new student to IFR training we offer knowledge, experience and practice to complete your instrument rating. By knowing the basic principles and being well grounded in the "nuts and bolts" of flying  IFR, you will gain the confidence and proficiency to fly by instruments.  

If you want to sharpen your skills, we are able to offer the practice you need in our aircraft, your aircraft, or by use of our FAA certified Elite Simulator with Garmin GNS 430 GPS module.

Under Part 61.65, you must satisfy the following requirements:

  • The student must hold at least a current private pilot certificate with an airplane appropriate to     the instrument rating sought.
  • Receive and log ground training from an authorized instructor or a home study course of               training on the aeronautical training.
  • Receive a log book or training endorsement from an authorized instructor certifying that the         person is prepared to take the required knowledge test.
  •  Receive and log training in the areas of operations from an authorized instructor in an aircraft,     flight training device or simulator.
  • Receive a log book or training record endorsement from an authorized instructor certifying           that the person is prepared to take the required practical test.

Pilot vs. Aviator

It has been stated that the difference between a pilot and an aviator is the ability to fly by instrument. Multi-tasking the ability of aircraft control, radio navigation and radio communications is an art form.  Exotic avionics and autopilots will not compensate for poor flying skills or being unprepared for flying in IFR conditions.  These skills must come as a natural mastered response to your flying conditions. 

A VFR pilot flying caught in IFR conditions has displayed overconfidence and optimistic assuptions and has overlooked some obvious hazards.  

A well trainied IFR pilot will rely on the procedures and techniques taught in instrument training to fly with confidence knowing that emergencies and unusual situations can be handled without compromising basic flying tasks or flight safety.
