Cleared for the Approach!
There is nothing like flying a precision approach to an airport that is near minimum weather conditions….low and behold, you break out of the clouds and the runway is lit up like a Christmas tree right in front of you, welcoming you to land! The Instrument rating will allow you to use your Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot rating Most efficiently. You will be qualified to fly above the clouds and land in conditions that would otherwise ground you. The training you will receive will make you a sharper pilot in all areas, and will greatly build your confidence.
What will I be Learning?
The instrument pilot must be proficient in flying solely by reference to instruments. You will get quite good at your instrument scan and cockpit management skills. Earning the rating also calls for an in depth understanding of the ATC system, Advanced Navigation and Communication as well as a well versed understanding of Meteorology and weather analysis. There is plenty to learn and master in this rating.
Eligibility Requirements for Instrument Rating:
The regulations require that you log 40 hours of instrument flight training toward the rating. This training is best completed in a time frame that is fairly compact. Tropicbird offers a 21 day accelerated instrument-training program. We can also tailor the training program around your personal work and every day life schedule to make it more realistic with the time you can afford to spend.
